I had written a while back about Joyce DiDonato’s injury and I wrote here and here about another mishap. These poor singers!

And now there’s this:

If Sondra Radvanovsky ever wanted to pull a demanding diva act, now would be the time.

The American soprano, in town to sing Elvira in Lyric Opera of Chicago’s new production of Verdi’s Ernani (opening Tuesday night) is trundling around with a five-pound cast on one leg and a broken toe on the other. The cast is for a ligament torn after struggling with a purse snatcher in San Francisco Oct. 3. The broken toe occurred three days later onstage at the San Francisco Opera where she was singing Leonora in Verdi’s Il Trovatore.


The hazards of singing I guess. Or something.

Do read the whole article. There’s a lot more to Sondra Radvanovsky’s story. Truly. And she is one incredible singer!
