Fans of Anna Netrebko have been expressing their disappointment on Twitter after the Russian soprano's latest spate of cancellations.

Netrebko has announced that she will be pulling out of her January performances in order to get "an urgent operation on her foot." These include her sold-out La traviata dates at the Royal Opera House (January 17 and 20) and three German concerts with Erwin Schrott, which have been rescheduled for later in the year.

Netrebko pulled out of the last two Don Giovanni's at La Scala last month due to bronchitis, and withdrew from a New Year’s Eve Dresden Semperoper appearance with husband Erwin Schrott, although that was announced much earlier in the season.

In October, the soprano cancelled her Carnegie Hall recital debut after she was reportedly ordered by her doctor to take 10 days vocal rest.

"Ms. Netrebko is sorry to disappoint her fans and looks forward to returning to the stage later in January once she has fully recovered from the operation," reads a statement on her Web site.
