Lyric Opera Cast Change Announcement

I don't have the press release, but we'll assume that the Chicago Sun-Times isn't lying: Sophie Koch, scheduled to sing Didon, has withdrawn from the upcoming production of Les Troyens.

You can keep breathing: stepping in is

Susan Graham.

Graham was magnificent last year in SF, but I must admit that I was looking forward to Koch, about whom I have heard only good things.

Graham is definitely a luxury replacement. I selfishly hope Koch doesn't also cancel her Met run as Carmen, which is the only reason I'm planning to see the upcoming revival.

I hope you get to see her!
