Due to illness, Bulgarian soprano Krassimira Stoyanova has withdrawn from singing the role of Elizabeth of Valois in Don Carlo. The role of Elizabeth of Valois will now be sung in all performances by American soprano Kristin Lewis, making her Royal Opera debut.
Kristin Lewis has recently sung the roles of Amelia in Un ballo in maschera and Aida for Vienna State Opera, Leonora in Il trovatore and Mimì in La bohème for La Fenice, Venice, and Bess in Porgy and Bess for La Scala, Milan.
The rest of the Don Carlo cast remains unchanged.
