Due to ill health, British baritone Simon Keenlyside is unable to sing the role of Giorgio Germont in Saturday’s performance of La traviata.

The role will be sung by Polish baritone Artur Ruciński who appeared as Giorgio Germont at the Arena di Verona in 2013. This is his Royal Opera debut.

The rest of the cast remains the same.

    Fingers crossed that we get to see a lot more of Artur Rucinski at Covent Garden, he was a fantastic Giorgio tonight.

    How lucky to be at ROH for his debut performance. He was absolutely brilliant and the rest of the superb cast seemed to love having him there with them. He combined seemlessly into the part and made a memorable evening even more special. Please bring Artur back very soon.
