Casting Update News

Pretty Yende will sing the role of Elvira in tomorrow evening’s
performance of Bellini’s I Puritani, replacing Diana Damrau, who is ill.

Ms. Yende, who has sung Elvira with Zurich Opera, recently starred as
Rosina in a Met revival of Rossini’s Il Barbiere di Siviglia. She made an
unexpected Met debut in 2013 as Countess Adèle in Rossini’s Le Comte Ory
and returned in 2014 to sing Pamina in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte. Next
month, she will make her Met role debut as Juliette in Gounod’s Roméo et
Juliette. Her other recent performances have included the title role in
Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor at Paris Opera and Deutsche Oper Berlin;
Adina in Donizetti’s L’Elisir d’Amore at the Bavarian State Opera; and
Amira in Rossini’s Ciro in Babilonia at the Rossini Opera Festival.


Roberto Aronica will sing the role of Don José in the February 15
performance of Bizet’s Carmen, replacing the originally scheduled Marcelo
Álvarez, who is ill.

Italian tenor Aronica sang Don José at the Met on February 7 and 11, and
has previously sung the role at the Teatro Regio di Torino and Teatro
Comunale di Bologna. Following his Met debut in 1998 as Alfredo in Verdi’s
La Traviata, he starred as the Duke in Verdi’s Rigoletto and in three
Puccini roles: Rodolfo in La Bohème, Pinkerton in Madama Butterfly, and
Cavaradossi in Tosca. Later this season, he will reprise the role of Don
José at La Fenice and sing des Grieux in Puccini’s Manon Lescaut at
Naples’s Teatro di San Carlo.
