The quotes were because that was the only info provided by the ROH and it’s a fairly broad and generic reason for cancellation.  It could be her health, the health of a family member or a generic public reason agreed with the opera company. If Stoyanova has a health issue, it could be long term and chronic since this was also the reason for her 2015 San Francisco “Ballo” run cancellation and same for her 2016 San Francisco “Don Carlo” run.

Of the multiple times I've bought tickets to see her, I’ve only actually seen her once, at the ROH, as Tatyana. She was wonderful, even if she was relieved of a reasonable amount of the acting challenge by the doubled dancer in the role. Vocally, her Letter Scene was stunningly good.
