San Francisco Opera today announced two cast updates for its season-opening productions of Verdi’s Luisa Miller and Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Australian bass-baritone Daniel Sumegi will return to the War Memorial Opera House to sing the role of Count Walter in Verdi’s Luisa Miller, replacing Rafał Siwek. In lieu of John Easterlin, tenor David Curry will make his Company debut in the role of Adolfo Pirelli in Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Both Siwek and Easterlin have withdrawn from the productions, citing personal reasons.
