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

The role will be sung by Russian baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky who sang the role earlier this Season.

The rest of the cast remains the same.

    Yes, undoubtedly Dimitri is a luxury replacement but for an overall vocal and dramatic performance, Keenlyside is hard to beat. I wish him a very swift recovery.

      Excuse me, Bernice .... Hvorostovsky is already long time inaccessible to any comparison .... Keenlyside not bad ,cute voice.. but him clearly lacks the temperament and emotional lability!
