Alagna can’t keep his mouth shut! Even if his lawyer has explained that Alagna will appear tomorrow in an afternoon television talk show here in Italy (as he told Opera Chic in an interview below), the tenor has nonetheless spoken again to another Italian newspaper. Today’s Il Giorno carries a two-page spread on tenor Roberto Alagna. The headline is a direct quote of his stating, “I left La Scala, not Milano.”
In the interview, Alagna explains that he finally woke-up in a good mood after having experienced four very terrible days
Roberto says, “I have not sung since Sunday night, and something like this has never happened to me before to go so many days without singing. My heart was broken, and when your heart is broken, you are just not inspired to do anything. You have to put the pieces back together.”
“In front of La Scala on Thursday night, my fans asked me to sing. And so I sang for them a Puccini aria, just for my fans. The flame of song has been re-kindled.”
And then the tenor seems goes on in a bragging swagger, explaining that he saw police standing in front of the theater on Thursday night. [Ed: Okay Roberto, protocol may have changed since you've been here last, but for every single performance at the teater, from the lamest opera to the most star-studded event, has a barrage of at least a dozen cops standing directly in front of the main doors before the performance starts. Also, Thursday was a particular day, as there was a gigantic demonstration in Piazza della Scala, so there were just more cops out than normal anyway. Tone down the cockiness tia!]
Roberto says, “Didn’t you see all of those police men parading in front of the entrance? They were there to prevent me from entering the theater. Have you ever seen anything like that? I never thought of crashing and entering the theater anyway. I just went to Piazza della Scala to do what I thought was right. I went there to give an explanation to that group of the Milan audience that I love, and who never disrespected me…I love this city.”
OMG WE LAV U2 RABURTO!!
