A resilient Montserrat Caballé, still singing into her 80s, has been forced to cancel upcoming concerts in April and May after breaking an arm. She had dates in Austria, Switzerland and Germany, including Vienna’s Konzerthaus, which announced that she would need to continue physiotherapy until the end of May.
Last October Caballé, then a sprightly 79, suffered a stroke while in Russia and, while briefly losing consciousness, fell and broke an arm. Reports are not clear whether she is still undergoing treatment for this arm, or whether she’s broken one again.
Caballé was 80 on 12 April.
