These are the final stage moments of the Argentine soprano Florencia Fabris. Taken ill towards the end of Verdi’s Requiem, she raises a hand to her head, whispers something to a fellow singer and leaves the stage holding her colleague’s hand as soon as the work is over.
Florencia was rushed to hospital where, after brain surgery, she died. She was 38 and a mother. Her funeral is taking place today.
