Dear friends, where did we leave off? I was taking part at La Scala in Aida, an unforgettable experience because at some point I became Covid-19 positive and with me the rest of my family. I wasn’t able to give the final performance, scheduled for 19th October, and I went through some truly terrible moments. Luckily I was asymptomatic and everything turned out well. From this evening I’m back to life as normal, which for me means singing at the theatre. I’m at the Opéra de Monte-Carlo for a concert performance of I Due Foscari. I’m singing as Jacopo Foscari with an exceptional cast featuring Plácido Domingo and Anna Pirozzi. I’ve already sung with Plácido in this lovely yet little performed opera by Verdi at the Los Angeles Opera, the Royal Opera House and at Teatro alla Scala.
