Due to illness, South African-born British tenor Colin Lee has withdrawn from the role of Rodrigo for the performance of La donna del lago on 20 May. The role will be sung by Michael Spyres who also replaced Colin Lee on 17 May.

Michael Spyres has previously sung the role of Rodrigo at La Scala, Milan, in 2011. His other recent roles include Hoffmann in Les Contes d’Hoffmann in Barcelona, Don Ramiro in La Cenerentola in Bologna and Masaniello in La Muette de Portici for the Opéra-Comique, Paris. He will also sing the role at Covent Garden on the 7, 11 June as originally scheduled.

The rest of the cast remains the same.
