San Francisco Opera today announced a cast change for its upcoming Company revival of Mozart’s The Magic Flute. Mexican-American baritone—and 2015 Adler Fellow—Efraín Solís will make his role debut as Papageno beginning October 20, in lieu of previously announced Philippe Sly who has withdrawn from the production citing personal family reasons.Solis has been terrific on stage, stealing a scene or two from the likes of Dolora Zajick, and I am sure he will be a terrific Papageno. Wishing Mr. Sly the best.
