Subject: Gustavo Dudamel: Venezuela star conductor's tour cancelled

Written By: Philip Eno on 08/22/17 at 2:24 am

Venezuelan star conductor Gustavo Dudamel has confirmed media reports that his US tour with Venezuela's National Youth Orchestra has been cancelled. Dudamel said the cancellation, which came just days after President Nicolás Maduro publicly criticised him, was "heartbreaking". In May, the conductor spoke out against the government. "May God forgive you for letting yourself be fooled," Mr Maduro replied. Dudamel, 36, is the music director of both the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela. He gained further fame by becoming the youngest musician to conduct the Vienna Philharmonic's annual new year's concert in 2017.
