I, too, bought a ticket for Don Carlo, mostly to hear you, and am so-o-o-o disappointed you won’t be here. I hope you are well. There doesn’t seem to be info on why you’ve cancelled.

Very disappointed you are not Rodrigo at the MET April 6th.
I live in Maine, am 78 years old, bought my ticket months ago….used to go down every year, but haven’t been able to for several years; but seeing you on the schedule made me reassess that.
Best of luck Simon, you have a gorgeous voice.
