The lovely David Lomeli has withdrawn from the second-cast Rigoletto at San Francisco Opera; the press release cites "personal reasons."
Given his wife's past health problems - she is soprano Sara Gartland, and she had a stroke a couple of years back at a young age - I've asked SFO whether that's the reason for his withdrawal. I certainly hope she is well.
Francesco Demuro, from the first cast, will sing two additional performances. Arturo Chacon-Cruz, making his SFO debut, takes the remaining four performances.
