Alagna: The “Sugars” Made Me Do It

Tenor Roberto Alagna says he had to leave the La Scala stage in mid-performance last weekend because of low blood sugar. “I was fine when I started, but this problem with my metabolism, if I am very emotional or stressed, my system consumes sugars very quickly. After that happened to me, the sugars went down dramatically. I couldn’t stay on my feet, I had to sit. I didn’t have the strength.”
