Met Cast Changes

The curtain isn't up yet, and already....
  • Amanda Majeski sings the Countess in the opening night Nozze di Figaro and throughout the September/October run. Marina Poplavskaya has withdrawn for health reasons.
  • Rachel Willis-Sørensen will sing the Countess in the December Nozze performances, which Majeski was originally going to sing. (Both casts look pretty good to me, although Danielle de Niese as Susanna? Dunno.)
  • Tobias Kehrer takes the role of Sarastro in October and November performance of The Magic Flute that would have been sung by Franz-Josef Selig, who has withdrawn for health reasons.
