Casting Update News

Patricia Racette will add a new role to her Met repertory as the title
character in all performances of Strauss’s Salome this season, replacing
the originally announced Catherine Naglestad. Ms. Naglestad was forced to
withdraw from the performances, which were to be her Met debut, for
medical reasons that will prevent her traveling to America as scheduled.

Racette is currently singing Salome with Pittsburgh Opera, and has
previously sung the role with San Antonio Opera and in concert at the
Ravinia Festival. Later this season, she will sing the role with Los
Angeles Opera. She has sung 170 Met performances of 19 different roles
over the course of her career with the company, in a varied repertory that
has recently included Nedda in the new production of Leoncavallo’s
Pagliacci; Maddalena in Giordano’s Andrea Chénier; the title role of
Puccini’s Tosca; Madame Lidoine in Poulenc’s Dialogues des Carmélites;
Cio-Cio-San in Puccini’s Madama Butterfly; Leonora in Verdi’s Il
Trovatore; and the three principal soprano roles in Puccini’s Il Trittico.
This spring, she will make another Met role debut when she sings her first
company performances of Roxane in Alfano’s Cyrano.
