British soprano Mary Bevan is suffering from a throat infection, and is unable to sing the title role of Orpheus for the first six performances of Rossi’s Orpheus. Mary Bevan will act the role for the first two performances (23 and 24 October), while Australian soprano Siobhan Stagg will sing the role from the gallery. Siobhan Stagg will then perform the role of Orpheus for the next four performances (27, 28 and 30 October; and 1 November). Mary Bevan will perform the role of Orpheus for the final six performances: 4, 6, 8, 9, 12 and 15 November.

Siobhan Stagg is a member of the Deutsche Oper Berlin, and in the last two years has appeared at the Salzburg Festival, Hamburg State Opera, Berlin State Opera, the Berlin Philharmonie, the Prinzregententheater in Munich, and at the Grand Théâtre de Genève, as well as with the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra, Ensemble Modern and the Mozarteum Orchestra, Salzburg. Her recent appearances include Pamina in Die Zauberflöte, Sophie in Werther, Frasquita in Carmen and Flowermaiden in Parsifal for Deutsche Oper Berlin, Blonde in Die Entführung aus dem Serail for Hamburg State Opera and Marzelline in Fidelio for Grand Théâtre de Genève.

Siobhan has performed in opera and concert with conductors including Simon Rattle, Christian Thielemann, Simone Young, Donald Runnicles, Kent Nagano, and Stephen Layton. Forthcoming roles include Gilda in Rigoletto and Sophie in Der Rosenkavalier at the Deutsche Oper Berlin and Morgan in Alcina in Geneva.

The rest of the cast remains the same.

    I had the great privilege of seeing Sibohan Stagg play the part of Orpheus and she was brilliant. I have seen Mary Bevan perform before but think Sibohan was much better. This is a great young performer that we need to see much more of in this country.
