Amanda Echalaz has had to withdraw from Jonathan Kent's Tosca on 2 and 5 February due to illness.

The role of Floria Tosca will now be sung by Odessan–born soprano Maria Guleghina on 2 and 5 February.

Maria Guleghina previously performed the role of Floria Tosca for The Royal Opera in 1997, 2000 and 2004 in the Franco Zeffirelli production.

Her other roles for The Royal Opera include Princess Fedora Romazov in Fedora, Lady Macbeth in Macbeth, Maddalena in Andrea Chénier in concert and Odabella in Attila. She has recently sung Tosca for the Metropolitan Opera, New York.

The rest of the cast remains unchanged.

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

    Maria Guleghina has sung Tosca at The Mariinsky Theatre production last summer. It was an unbelievable triumph! After one of the arias the conductor had to stop the orchestra, because the thunderstorm-like applauds of the audience and shouts BRAVISSIMA! didn't allow to continue the performance. Ms. Guleghina and the orchestra had to repeat the aria right withing the performance!

    Very sad that sick Amanda Echalaz, but Ms. Guleghina fantastic Tosca. I was in the MET to her Tosca a few years ago. It's unforgettable.
    I presented my friends tickets for this performance and I am pleased to have occurred cast changes.

    Buona fortuna a tutti

    It was a big mistake to change the role of Floria Tosca. I felt Maria Guleghina's performance on 5th Feburay was disappointment [...] Even more disappointed when she sang the most beautiful and powerful aria Vissi d'arte, Her voice wasn't quite made aria sounded emotional and her interpretation of this aria was very disappointed.
