More Dominos in the Met Boheme

You might remember this posting, about Sonya Yoncheva: she took on some Traviata performances, owing to the withdrawal of Marina Poplavskaya from the role of Violetta, and in doing so, surrendered some performances in which she was to sing Musetta in La Boheme.

Deep breath; there's more:
  • Anna Netrebko has withdrawn from the title role in a run of Manon Lescaut at the Bayerische Staatsoper.
  • The Met has released Kristine Opolais from her December appearances as Mimi in Boheme so that she can sing Manon Lescaut in Munich. Opolais will sing Mimi at the Met on January 15, 19, and 24, 2015, however.
  • Sonya Yoncheva will sing her first staged Mimi performances in Boheme, taking over the role from Opolais on November 14, 20, 24, 28, December 1 and  5, 2014.
