WNO Artistic Director Francesca Zambello said in a press release, "WNO is pleased to have come to an agreement with The Met so that Eric can make this important Met role debut, following his critically-acclaimed performance at WNO in 2018...And we are thrilled to welcome Ferruccio to WNO for the first time. This entire cast is one for the ages - we are excited to bring Mozart's great 'rom-com' to our audience with such extraordinary artists."
