Update: In an addition to the earlier cast change, Sophie Bevan will also perform the same role for the performance on 9 October 2015.
Due to illness, Romanian soprano Anita Hartig has withdrawn from singing the role of Susanna for the performances of Le nozze di Figaro on 5 and 9 October. The role will now be sung by British soprano Sophie Bevan.
Sophie Bevan made her Royal Opera debut in September 2012 as Woodbird in Siegfried, and has since returned to sing Pamina in Die Zauberflöte and Ilia in Idomeneo for the Company. She has previously sung the role of Susanna for Garsington Opera and in the Schools’ Matinee on 23 September for The Royal Opera. She will also sing the role for The Royal Opera on 7 and 14 October, as originally scheduled.
The rest of the cast remains unchanged.
