Cast changes in Les Contes d'Hoffmann at the Met

There are some changes in the cast of the new Met's production of Offenbach's Les Contes d'Hoffmann scheduled for December 3, 2009 through January 2, 2010 at the Met.

Rolando Villazón has withdrawn from the title role in all the performances scheduled. He announced yesterday that he is undergoing throat surgery and expects to return to the stage in 2010. The Metropolitan Opera looks forward to his return in future seasons. A replacement for the role of Hoffmann will be announced at a later date.

Kate Lindsey substitutes Elina Garanca as Nicklausse and the Muse in the last three performances, on 26. and 30. December 2009 and 2. January 2010.
