Simon Keenlyside cancelling all performances through April

Simon Keenlyside
Simon Keenlyside has posted a message on his fan site that he is cancelling all of his performances through April in order to rest his vocal cords. He is withdrawing from Verdi's Falstaff is Munich, his March concert at Avery Fisher Hall in New York, as well as Don Carlo at the Met and in Munich.

We wish him a speedy recover and look forward to his expected return for Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin in Munich. 


  1. Cords. Not chords.

  2. Simon is not doing Eugene Onegin in Munich, he will be doing Don Carlo there in July and before that he is scheduled to do Rigoletto in Vienna in June, hopefully without the same disastrous outcome that affected him there in December and has resulted in these current cancellations! I think some of the info you have put here refers back to message he posted a couple of years ago. Hope he soon recovers. Can't live without that beautiful voice in my life!!!

    1. What happened to him that he hurt his cords? Yesterday he also posted he cancelled recitals coming up. Is he sick or what?
