Amanda Echalaz has had to withdraw from Tosca on 25 and 29 January due to illness.

The Royal Opera is extremely grateful to Romanian soprano Angela Gheorghiu, who will now sing the role for these performances.

Gheorghiu performed the role earlier during the run and will also sing the role on 21 January.

The soprano created the role of Floria Tosca for this production in 2006, directed by Jonathan Kent, and reprised the role in 2009, 2011 and 2016. She has also sung the role for companies including the Metropolitan Opera, New YorkVienna State Opera and San Francisco Opera, as well as in Benoît Jacquot’s film Tosca in 2001. Her other recent Royal Opera roles include Mimì in La bohème, Magda in La rondine, Marguerite in Faust and Adriana Lecouvreur.

The rest of the cast remains unchanged.

If you have a ticket please see terms and conditions of sale.
