Due to scheduling changes, on 22 February the role of Mario Cavaradossi in Tosca will be sung by Italian tenor Massimo Giordano and on 3 March by Italian tenor Riccardo Massi.

Massimo Giordano made his Royal Opera debut in 2003 as Fenton in Falstaff and has since returned to sing Mario Cavaradossi in Tosca and Des Grieux in Manon Lescaut for the Company. He has performed for opera companies including La Scala, Milan; Rome Opera, La Fenice, Venice, Metropolitan Opera, New York; Lyric Opera of Chicago, Paris Opéra, Bavarian State Opera, Berlin State Opera, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Vienna State Opera and at the Salzburg Festival.

Riccardo Massi made his Royal Opera debut in 2014 as Mario Cavaradossi in Tosca, and reprised the role with the Company in 2016. He made his operatic debut in 2009 as Radames in Aida in Salerno under Daniel Oren. He has since performed for the world’s major opera companies and venues, including La Scala, Milan; the Metropolitan Opera, New York; Berlin State Opera, Bavarian State Opera, Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, Paris Opéra, Opera Australia, Canadian Opera Company and Royal Swedish Opera.

The rest of the cast remains the same.
