Due to illness, English soprano Lucy Crowe has had to withdraw from singing the role of Gilda in Rigoletto tonight (4 January 2018). The role will now be sung by Spanish soprano Sabina Puértolas.

Puértolas made her Royal Opera debut in 2013 as Lisette in La rondine and has since returned to sing Despina in Così fan tutte. Recent engagements elsewhere include Contessa di Folleville in Il viaggio a Reims and Marie in La Fille du régiment for Gran Teatre del Liceu, Barcelona, Rosina in Il barbiere di Siviglia for Seattle Opera, Fiorilla in Il turco in Italia for Théâtre du Capitole de Toulouse, Rodelinda for Teatro Real, Madrid, and Gilda at Teatro Municipal de Santiago de Chile.

The rest of the cast remains the same.

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

    Well done Sabina- we were in the audience last night and she was brilliant and reached so well to the set and cast!

    Sabina gave a superb performance at such short notice. What courage as well as enormous talent. We cheered her to the rafters. Bravissima!

    Absolutely. Thrilling and sensitive.

    Agree with all the comments above, she deserved all her cheers and bravas. You'd never have known she was a last minute replacement, well done to her.
