Lučić Withdraws

Says the Met:
Željko Lučić has withdrawn from his spring Met engagements due to illness. In his place, George Gagnidze will sing Alfio in the new production of Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana. Gagnidze, who will also sing Tonio in Pagliacci as originally scheduled, will join Marcelo Álvarez in performing in both halves of the evening’s double bill; Álvarez sings both Turiddu in Cavalleria Rusticana and Canio in Pagliacci.  
Mark Delavan will replace Lučić as Amonasro in this April’s performances of Verdi’s Aida.
This seems to apply to performances from April 9 to May 8.
