Romanian baritone Sebastian Catana has withdrawn from the role of Scarpia in Tosca. The role will now be sung by Welsh bass-baritone Bryn Terfel on 16, 19 and 26 June; and Italian baritone Lucio Gallo on 21 June.

Bryn Terfel previously sang the role of Scarpia with The Royal Opera in Jonathan Kent’s production in 2006 and 2009. He has also sung the role for the Metropolitan Opera in New York, La Scala, Milan; in Munich and most recently in Berlin. He will also appear with The Royal Opera this Season as Méphistophélès in Faust.

Lucio Gallo previously sang the role of Scarpia for The Royal Opera in 2008 and has also sung the role in Berlin, Munich and Zurich. His most recent performances with The Royal Opera were as Iago in Otello, the title role in Gianni Schicchi and Michele in Il tabarro; all in the 2011/2012 Season.

The rest of the cast remains the same.

    Is Bryn the definitive Scarpia? I think so . I booked my tickets as soon as I saw he was singing! Can't wait for his Te Deum.
