Australian baritone Peter Coleman-Wright has withdrawn from singing the role of Sir Robert Cecil for all performances of Gloriana. The role will now be sung by British baritone Jeremy Carpenter, marking his debut with The Royal Opera.

Jeremy’s previous roles include Gérard in Andrea Chénier and Escamillo in Carmen for Royal Swedish Opera, Belcore in L’elisir d’amore for Angers-Nantes Opéra and Talpa in concert performances of Puccini’s Il tabarro with the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra.

Richard Jones’s new production of Gloriana runs from 20 June – 6 July

    But what's happened to PC-W? After substandard performances in Meistersinger and Ring Cycle,has he finally retired?...,is he ill?
    It's sad to see the demise of an artist whom I've admired since he sang so well in "Paul Bunyan" at the Shaftsbury Theatre during the ROH closure.

    We should be thankful after his recent dismal performances in the Meistersinger and in Gotterdammerung
