From Musical America Worldwide, March 10

“Jonas Kaufmann didn't actually ‘withdraw’ from the Met's new Tosca last week. In fact, his conditions for singing the role [of Cavaradossi] were unacceptable to the Met: Specifically, he would sing only four performances, not including the opening (New Year's Eve), and he wouldn't be available for the rehearsal period.”
