Kiri Te Kanawa retiring

Dame Kiri announced yesterday that she will be retiring from the opera stage next April at 66 years young. Her last performance will be in Rosenkavalier with Cologne with her penultimate one being at the Met in February and both will, I guarantee, sell completely out. Apparently she's going to keep singing, however, promising to do recitals and concerts for as long as people keep buying tickets.
