SFO Les Troyens: At Least We Don't Have to Worry About Giordani

A Met cast-change advisory tells me that Marcello Giordani, widely panned as Enee in their current revival of Les Troyens, has withdrawn from the remaining four performances and is retiring the role.

Brian Hymel, who saved the day at Covent Garden when Jonas Kaufmann couldn't sing, replaces Giordani for the balance of the run, including the HD broadcast on January 5.
