Figlia! A Tal Nome Io Palpito!
And her name is: Lianna Haroutounian.
You may recall that Haroutounian had been announced for one performance as Amelia Grimaldi in Simon Boccanegra, with the balance TBA. Today, the Met said that the Armenian soprano will sing all of the performances, on April 1, 5, 9, 13, and 16, 2016.
Lucky Met audiences! I heard her in Tosca about a year ago in SF, and how I would love to see her in this.
