A performance of Verdi’s Ernani at the Capitole de Toulouse was cancelled last Tuesday, because South Korean tenor Alfred Kim, who held the title role, was placed under custody over violence against his girlfriend. Today the Criminal court of Toulouse sentenced the singer to eight months suspended prison and a fine of € 8,000 for Assault and battery. French press reports say, the events took place on Monday in Kim’s hotel room.

According to the website Operbase, Alfred Kim is scheduled to appear in Aida at La Monnaie in Brussels and in Turandot at the Royal Opera in London.
