Metropolitan Opera Announces Cast Change Advisory for Tomorrow

Angela Meade will sing the role of Leonora in tomorrow afternoon's performance of Verdi's Il Trovatore, replacing Patricia Racette, who is ill. The performance will be broadcast worldwide over the Toll Brothers-Metropolitan Opera Radio Network. As previously scheduled, Meade will also sing the role on Wednesday, January 16.

Meade, the 2012 winner of the Met's Beverly Sills Artist Award, made her company debut as Elvira in Verdi's Ernani in 2008. She reprised that role last season in an acclaimed series of performances that included a worldwide Live in HD transmission. Her other Met roles have included the title character in Donizetti's Anna Bolena and the Countess in Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro.

Il Trovatore, conducted by Daniele Callegari, also stars Stephanie Blythe as Azucena, Marco Berti as Manrico, Alexey Markov as di Luna, and Christophoros Stamboglis as Ferrando.
