The Theatre Royal in Norwich has cancelled its performance by Glyndebourne Opera of Dvorak’s Rusalka, after baritone Robert Poulton died in a car accident on Tuesday night.
Mr Poulton was due to be singing the role of Gamekeeper as part of Glyndebourne's 2012 visit to Norwich Theatre Royal. The theatre has cancelled tonight's show as a mark of respect to Robert, his family and colleagues.
All ticket holders will be fully refunded by cheque within the next week, and the Theatre Royal is in the process of contacting all bookers for tonight’s performance to inform them of the cancellation. Friday’s performance of Rusalka is scheduled to go ahead, and some seats are still available.
