Due to illness, Russian mezzo-soprano and Jette Parker Young Artist Nadezhda Karyazina has withdrawn from singing the role of Mercédès in The Royal Opera’s production of Carmen for the performance on 16 December.

Fellow Jette Parker Young Artist Irish mezzo-soprano Rachel Kelly will now make her role debut as Mercédès for this performance, as well as singing the role on 21 and 23 December and 1 and 4 January, as previously advertised.

Rachel Kelly is currently singing the role of Second Esquire in The Royal Opera’s production of Parsifal. She sang the role of the Cat in El gato con botas during Meet the Young Artists Week for The Royal Opera.

The rest of the cast for this performance is unchanged.
