What happened to his right hand in the Salzburg pics?

Casual talk, banter, and fun. Picture yourself with a glass of champagne in your hand, waiting for Act III to begin.

What happened to his right hand? Why the bandage? You don't see the bandage in the video.

Oh, I need to be logged in to see the pics. Hmm ...

It looks like a professional bandage for a strained wrist. Maybe he tripped and caught his weight? I don't think it is part of the costume.

Too much playing an instrument or typing can be ruled out during the rehearsal phase in Salzburg I think.

Well I never had any troubles playing even days in a row, and I don't know any professional gamer even who ever had troubles in that direction. Typing is a lot worse ... Hmm. I have no idea ;)


Edit: I have ideas, actually. But firstly, they most likely have nothing to do with what really happened, and secondly, the public-ness of this thread as well as general rules of conduct, etc., ... forbid me elaborate my assumptions.

Let's settle on practising too much Rachmaninov. Or playing too much Resident Evil. :P

Didn't Michael Jackson perform with his hand in a bandage once? That was part of his costume, I believe. And PJ carries his injury with so much more dignity and style. 8-)

But if he was really injured he is a trooper! Just biting the pain and sing and act anyway! (But carrying the rifle with the wrong hand, I had already noticed that-5 kilo's, hurts)

I saw Joyce diDonato do an opera once in a wheelchair with a broken ankle, that had just happened the day before, poor woman. I don't know what kind of painkillers they had to put her on to get her through that evening. :shock:

Yeah, saw it too and she was hilarious in it.



But yes, noticed PJ bandage the first time and wondered if it was part of the costume or not...

Do you know someone else who sings 'drugged' because of an injury? :P

Well you survive a strained wrist, it just hurts. He's not a sissy, is he ... duh! I don't think it was part of the costume, as it wasn't there in the broadcast, only in the pics for the programme and the PR pics before.

And ofc, Jackson turned wrist-bandages into a trademark-accessoire. Well, what does it convey there? Exactly what you say, I think, as we think of a real injury. Vulnerability, the will and power to overcome hardships, ...

Edit: Di Donato is great in this one!

Hmm, drugged singers, I don't know?

What is similar in a way, and in many ways not at all, of course, was to see Thomas Quasthoff as Amfortas. (You see a brief excerpt there at about 1 min.):

He was injured during the rehearsals. At least, that's what I heard.
