Due to vocal indisposition, Christine Rice has had to withdraw from singing the role of Penelope in The Return of Ulysses for the remainder of the run. The role will now be sung by Australian mezzo-soprano Caitlin Hulcup. We are very grateful to Christine Rice who walked the role on stage for the performances on 10, 12 and 13 January.
Caitlin Hulcup made her Royal Opera debut in 2009 as Arbaces (Artaxerxes) and has since sung Aristeus (Rossi’s Orpheus) at the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, Shakespeare’s Globe for the Company.
The rest of the cast remains the same.
