I am sad to announce that I have had to withdraw from the upcoming remount of our wonderful Lulu production at Hamburg Staatsoper. My mother passed away suddenly and recently, and it is necessary to now take the time to honour, reflect and recover during this moment of passage. I loved creating this incredible production with our team led by Christoph Marthaler and Kent Nagano, and will miss it dearly. But Lulu will understand. I wish my dear colleagues inspiring rehearsals and performance, and send all my best wishes to my replacement, Mojca Erdmann.
UPDATE: Barbara has also cancelled two “Written on Skin” concerts with Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France in February. We are very grateful that Georgia Jarman will perform the role of Agnès.
