The role of Hélène will now be sung by Armenian soprano Lianna Haroutounian for all remaining performances of Les Vêpres siciliennes.
Unfortunately the illness that prevented Marina Poplavskaya from singing the role of Hélène in the premiere of our new production of Les Vêpres siciliennes has persisted longer than expected, and has made it impossible for her to sing the remaining performances. We look forward to welcoming her back to The Royal Opera for further engagements.
The rest of the cast remains the same.
