Get Well Soon, Salvatore Licitra!

Salvatore Licitra, the Italian - Swiss tenor had a bad crash on his scooter in Sicily over the weekend and is still in very serious condition (he didn't have a helmet on) at the hospital.

As you can see, aside from being a bloody good opera singer, the man also has a heart of gold. Obviously he won't now be able to sing in the Teatro Communal di Bologna's tour of Japan that was planned for next month (September). Let's all hope for his complete and speedy recovery. We need good people like him around!

Edited 5 Sept 2011: Sadly, Salvatore Licitra passed away after 9 days in a coma at the Garibaldi Hospital in Catania.
