Soprano Anna Netrebko added to her list of cancellations, withdrawing from a new production of Wagner’s Lohengrin at the Metropolitan Opera that is among seven new stagings the company announced for its 2022-23 season. Nebrebko scrapped four performances of Verdi’s Nabucco at the Vienna State Opera from November 1-12, saying she needed shoulder surgery. She then pulled out of four Nabucco performances at London’s Royal Opera from January 14-24, with the company citing travel restrictions in Europe. Next season includes seven new-to-the Met productions, the most since 2012-13. Four are originating at the Met and three will move to New York after opening in Europe.
