Canadian tenor Joseph Kaiser is unwell and has had to withdraw from the role of Flamand in The Royal Opera’s concert performances of Capriccio.

The role of Flamand will now be sung by British tenor Andrew Staples. His roles for The Royal Opera have included Tamino (Die Zauberflöte, 2013 revival), Artabanes (Artaxerxes), Narraboth (Salome) and First Man in Armour (Die Zauberflöte, 2008 revival). Other recent roles include Ferrando (Così fan tutte) for Opera Holland Park, Lysander (A Midsummer Night’s Dream) for Garsington Opera and Belfiore (La finta giardiniera) for La Monnaie, Brussels.

The rest of the cast remains the same.
