Avgust Amonov will sing the title role in tomorrow afternoon's performance of Verdi's Otello, replacing Johan Botha, who is ill.

The Russian tenor made his Met debut last Saturday, October 13, as Otello and also sang the role on October 16. He has sung the role at the Lithuanian National Opera, and performs frequently with St. Petersburg's Mariinsky Opera, where his recent roles have included Don Alvaro in Verdi's La Forza del Destino, Radamès in Verdi's Aida, and The Emperor in Richard Strauss's Die Frau ohne Schatten.

Otello, conducted by Semyon Bychkov, also stars Renée Fleming as Desdemona, Falk Struckmann as Iago, and Michael Fabiano as Cassio.
