Daniel Barenboim is retiring at present
Berlin – Staatsoper Unter den Linden’s general manager of music, Daniel Barenboim, will not act for long due to health reasons.
Barenboim had announced his withdrawal from some of his shows, especially performances, for health reasons in the coming months, the opera house confirmed in a statement on Wednesday.
Barenboim had previously announced his withdrawal via social media accounts. “My health has deteriorated over the past few months and I have been diagnosed with a serious neurological disease,” the 79-year-old wrote.
He should now focus as much as possible on his physical safety. He will “retire from some of my performances, especially from driving.”
Barenboim has failed many times in the past. The 79-year-old underwent spinal surgery in February. On the recommendation of his doctors, he should take a break. Recently, his vasculitis disease forced him to enter the hospital and take a break.
