Simon Keenlyside replaced by Lucas Meachem in Le nozze di Figaro
American baritone to sing role of Count Almaviva.
Lucas Meachem will replace Simon Keenlyside for all performances of Le nozze di Figaro due to illness.
The American baritone will sing the role of Count Almaviva, having previously sung the role at Munich’s Bavarian State Opera and San Francisco Opera. His repertoire also includes the role of Figaro in Il barbiere di Siviglia, Rossini’s prequel to Le nozze di Figaro.
