Metropolitan Opera Announces THE TEMPEST Cast Change Advisory

Bruce Sledge will make his Met role debut as the King of Naples in this evening's performance of Thomas Adès's The Tempest, replacing William Burden, who is ill.

The American tenor made his Met debut in 2003 as Count Almaviva in Rossini's IL Barbiere di Siviglia. His Met repertoire also includes the Duke of Mantua in Verdi's Rigoletto, and three Mozart roles: Ferrando in Così fan tutte, Tamino in Die Zauberflöte, and Don Ottavio in Don Giovanni.

The Tempest, conducted by Adès in a Met premiere production by Robert Lepage, also stars Audrey Luna as Ariel, Isabel Leonard as Miranda, Iestyn Davies as Trinculo, Alek Shrader as Ferdinand, Alan Oke as Caliban, Toby Spence as Antonio, and Simon Keenlyside as Prospero.
