More cancellations for 2020

Due to the ongoing coronavirus situation, the Austrian Federal Government announced yesterday that all indoor events of more than 100 participants due to take place up to 30 June 2020 will now be cancelled. This means that Simon’s concert in April with Marina Rebeka at the Konzerthaus, Vienna, will not now take place. The June performances of La Traviata and Falstaff at the Vienna State Opera have also been cancelled.
