Shafted again! Angela Gheorghiu plays hooky tonight. Come 7:00 pm local Vienna time, Gheorghiu will be nowhere near Staatsoper Wien for her appearance as Marguerite in Charles Gounod's Faust with IRL hubby Roberto Alagna as scheduled.
The terrible twosome ~Clan Alagna~ have lately been streaking through cancellations left and right. First a double walkout on a live radio program in Vienna, then Roberto Alagna canceled his scheduled appearance at the Pavarotti Tribute Concert in Petra, Jordan (as so kindly pointed out by la Diva herself, Cynthia Lawrence). Now it's Angela's turn for a solo bounce. We're wondering if she ate undercooked Mansaf in Jordan? Or is she just playing hard to get?
