Due to illness, American tenor Leonardo Capalbo has withdrawn from singing the role of Ismaele in Nabucco on 6 June 2016.

The role will now be sung by French tenor Jean-François Borras, who will also sing the role on 13, 21 and 30 June, as previously scheduled.

Borras made his Royal Opera debut in 2012 as Raimbaut in Robert le diable.

His recent performances include Rodolfo in La bohème, Des Grieux in ManonWerther for Vienna State Opera, Rodolfo, Werther and the Duke of Mantua in Rigoletto for the Metropolitan Opera, and Edgardo in Lucia di Lammermoor in Florence and Avignon.

The rest of the cast remains unchanged.

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

    Was he the replacement who stood in half way through today's public rehearsal? Sounded and looked good.

      Hi Peter,

      Thanks for your comment. Yes, Jean-François Borras sang from Part II in today's general rehearsal.

      All best,
      Rachel
