Sad Glyndebourne Tito news

Edit: seems Coote is still singing tonight 😉

Edit at the intermission: all went well! In fact better than well, it was pretty much great! Echoes of the classic Salzburg production so I’m happy 🙂 everybody sounding great. Lots of fun and cake for Team London.

Just heard Alice Coote won’t be able to sing Vitellia tonight due to a very serious sounding stage injury. I really hope she’s doing as well as it can be expected 😦 and I wish her a speedy recovery. Glyndebourne has not updated their Tito page yet so I don’t know anything else, since as you know I live under a rock outside Twitter-world.

It just so happens that tonight is the night Leander, Baroque Bird and I have tickets to Tito, so stay tuned for other (hopefully better) news from the Glyndebourne lawn and auditorium.

  1. nothing yet on Twitter, as far as I could see.
    But Coote posted her immbolized and buffered neck/head, though and wince – wishing an uncomplicated, quick and sound recovery indeed.

  2. Apart from the aforementioned wince-inducing shot of Alice Coote in a neck brace (yikes), it is kind of fun to be following both Glyndebourne and Boston politics in the Twittersphere right now 🙂

    • Haha! I have to say, I would have a hard time not feeling like I need to vote for Tito 😀

      It was all good in the end. Vitellia punished before the show began 😉 Before Twitter days we wouldn’t even have known something was amiss.
