(Alagna waves farewell to his fans in Piazza della Scala)
SO WHAT THE F**K?
Alagna has clearly lost his mind!
There was a huge demonstration in Piazza della Scala all afternoon and early evening, which added to the circus atmosphere that embraced Alagna, as he appeared outside of La Scala this evening, brandishing his cell phone.
“Alagna, who had said he would sue the theater if they did not let him return, arrived in Piazza della Scala shortly before Verdi's "Aida" was due to start and began singing before a crowd of onlookers and photographers”.
More from Opera Chic in a moment...
Roberto, slow down, buddy. This is all a little too much for me to take right now.
Soooo, Alagna was found this evening outside of Teatro alla Scala in the piazza shortly after Aida began tonight, cavorting with his cellphone and belting-out a few snippets from selected arias.
Taking a picture with his cell phone, he said, "I came to take a souvenir, my last happy memory of La Scala because I don't know when I will see it again.” BWHAHAHAHA!
Alagna, dizzy with hypoglycemia, spouted to the reporters:
“My blood sugar Sunday night was 0.50. It was way too low for me to go on. La Scala did not wait for me and nobody came to see me in the dressing room. I could have fainted right there!”
“I sang in this theater La Bohème only two days after the death of my first wife, and I have replaced a tenor in La Traviata here, singing four times in five days.”
“Now La Scala has forgotten everything.”
Privately, Alagna guaranteed that both Zeffirelli and Lissner sent him a message of solidarity. Alagna also revealed that, “Decca said they only make the Aida DVD if I am the protagonist in this production. And in Sanremo, I will go as a special guest. My wife will not go to Sanremo with me, but Angela and I will make a record of pop music duets.”
ALAGNA IS H4RC0RE AS HELL!
But can you believe he played his "MY DEAD WIFE" card?! That's really weak Alagna.
Alagna’s all like, “I can't wait till everyone in the world sees me and my crazy devil-may-care attitude!”
vvvv UPDATE vvvv
"Addio fiorito asil, di letizia e d'amor. Sempre il mite suo sembiante con strazio atroce vedrò."
This link from Corriere della Sera relays another gem from Alagna's little show tonight:
"With his eyes turned towards ' al teatro del Piermarini', [ed: il Piermarini is sometimes used to name "La Scala", based on the name of the architect] Alagna sang Pinkerton's sweet aria, 'Addio fiorito asil, di letizia e d'amor,' from Madama Butterfly.
