Anthony Roth Costanzo To Sing In Met's The Enchanted Island Tonight

Anthony Roth Costanzo will sing the role of Prospero tonight in this season's final performance of The Enchanted Island, replacing David Daniels, who is ill. Jeffrey Mandelbaum will replace Mr. Costanzo in the role of Ferdinand.

Costanzo made his Met debut earlier this season as Unulfo in Handel's Rodelinda. He has been singing the role of Ferdinand in The Enchanted Island since the production premiere on December 31, 2011. He also sang Prospero in the January 14 and 28 performances, and in the second act of the January 12 performance. He was a grand finals winner at the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions in 2009.

Mandelbaum made his Met debut as Ferdinand on January 12, taking Costanzo's place when he stepped in as Prospero, and repeated the role in the January 14 and 28 performances. He has sung Ottone in L'Incoronazione di Poppea at New York City Opera and was a district winner in the 2003 Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions.

The Enchanted Island is a pastiche of baroque music by Handel, Vivaldi, Rameau, and others, with a libretto by Jeremy Sams. William Christie conducts a cast that also features Danielle De Niese, Lisette Oropesa, Joyce DiDonato, Plácido Domingo, and Luca Pisaroni. The production is by Phelim McDermott with Julian Crouch as associate director and set designer, Kevin Pollard as costume designer, Brian MacDevitt as lighting designer, and animations and projection designs by 59 Productions.
