The Metropolitan Opera Announces Cast Change Advisory for IL TROVATORE

Elena Manistina will sing the role of Azucena in this evening's performance of Verdi's Il Trovatore, replacing Stephanie Blythe, who is ill.

Russian mezzo-soprano Manistina made her Met debut as Azucena last Saturday evening. She has sung the role at numerous leading opera houses, including the Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona, Bordeaux Opera, Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris, Marseille Opera, and the Canadian Opera Company in Toronto. Earlier this season, she sang two roles at the Bolshoi in Moscow: Marina in Mussorgsky's Boris Godunov and Princess Romanovna in Tchaikovsky's The Enchantress.

Il Trovatore, conducted by Daniele Callegari, also stars Patricia Racette as Leonora, Marco Berti as Manrico, Alexey Markov as di Luna, and Christophoros Stamboglis as Ferrando.
