Roberto Alagna cancels

Roberto Alagna will not be singing the role of Lohengrin in the Bayreuth Festival’s new production of the opera of the same name.

On 29 june 2018, the artist informed the Festival artistic direction through his agency of his cancellation, citing the following reason: “Mr. Alagna has to cancel the new production of Lohengrin because he wasn’t able to sufficiently study the part due to work overload.”

The artistic direction of the Bayreuth Festival is currently conducting an intense research for a singer to replace Roberto Alagna.
