Erin Morley to Step in as 'Sophie' in Met Opera's DER ROSENKAVALIER
Erin Morley will sing the role of Sophie in all performances of Strauss's Der Rosenkavalier this season, replacing Mojca Erdmann, who is still recovering from a recent case of pneumonia.
Morley, a graduate of the Met's Lindemann Young Artist Development Program, has sung nine roles with the company, including Constance in last season's revival of Poulenc's Dialogues des Carmélites; Woglinde and the Forest Bird in Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen; Madame Podtochina's daughter in the Met premiere of Shostakovich's The Nose; Echo in Strauss's Ariadne auf Naxos; and the Dew Fairy in Humperdinck's Hansel and Gretel.
Der Rosenkavalier is conducted by Edward Gardner and also stars Martina Serafin as the Marschallin; Alice Coote, Daniela Sindram, and Géraldine Chauvet as Octavian; Eric Cutler and Mario Chang as the Italian Singer; Hans-Joachim Ketelsen as Faninal; and Peter Rose as Baron Ochs.
The revival opens Friday, November 22, with additional performances on November 25, 30 matinee, December 3, 7, 10, and 13.
