So what, exactly?

The 4 bloggers whose opinions I have learned to trust most in the virtual reality of operafans feel very oppositely about the recent performances of Rolando Villazón. Intermezzo and Mostly Opera were charmed by his Hoffmann at the Royal Opera House late last November.

But now, it seems his Edgardo in the current Met's Lucia is a disaster, if you're relying on Maury d'Annato and Sieglinde.

Add to that he just cancelled Jolanthe for the upcoming Baden-Baden festival.  

Can someone please tell me what the f... is going on with Rolando Villazón?
