The superintendent Alexander Pereira informs: "Edita Gruberová was extremely happy to come for a recital at the Teatro del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino on June 14, 2020, a recital which was then postponed to October 3 due to the changes in the schedule because the health emergency. The forced pause due to Covid-19 has also significantly delayed preparations for her concert. For Mrs Gruberová was important to keep her voice in shape thanks to regular artistic performances. The situation created by the virus made it impossible to maintain a singing routine, as all the events were canceled. Since August, Mrs. Gruberová has therefore resumed the preparation of the ambitious program scheduled for the evening of 3 October 2020. Despite her extraordinary commitment, Edita Gruberová informed us today of her desire to end her career. We were extremely happy to be able to host one of the greatest soprano in the world for one of her concerts in our theater, and we are very sorry to know that this great moment will not take place”.
