Scala: tenor Meli, I am positive at Covid – Ultima Ora


(ANSA) – MILAN, 18 OCT – “Dear friends, I inform you that I tested positive at Covid and therefore tomorrow I will not sing at the last Aida concert at La Scala”: the tenor Francesco Meli, engaged in the role of Radames in the opera in concert form staged at the Piermarini.

“I reassure you all, I am asymptomatic and I feel well – he adds – I will spend the quarantine in my house in Genoa, strictly following the health protocols. I will keep you updated, confident – concludes the forty year old tenor – to return to singing very soon”.

Tomorrow, for the last performance of Aida, the tenor Jonas Kaufmann will play the part of Radames. A luxury replacement, favored by the fact that the Austrian tenor is already busy on Thursday at La Scala in a recital. To his availability the thanks of the theater and to Meli the best wishes for a “quick convalescence”. All the people who worked with Meli in Aida underwent the swab and tested negative for the virus. (HANDLE).
