Alexey Lavrov To Sing ‘Pagliacci’ In Metropolitan Opera Matinee

Alessio Arduini has canceled the matinee performance of “Pagliacci” at the Metropolitan Opera.

The Met announced via Twitter that due to illness the Italian baritone would not be able to sing the role of Silvio in the Met’s broadcast. As a result, Alexey Lavrov will take over.

The Russian baritone is a graduate of the Metropolitan Opera Lindemann Young Artist Development Program and made his company debut in the 12-13 season as the Herald in “Otello” and the Flemish Deputy in “Don Carlo.” Since then he has gone on to appear as Silvio in “Pagliacci,” Malatesta in “Don Pasquale,” Schaunard in “La Bohème,” Count Dominik in “Arabella,” the Huntsman in “Rusalka,” and  Yamadori in “Madama Butterfly.” He next takes on Schaunard at the Met with Sonya Yoncheva and Michael Fabiano.

Arduini returns for the rest the five remaining performances.

“Pagliacci/Cavalleria Rusticana” stars Roberto Alagna, Aleksandra Kurzak, Ekaterina Semenchuck, and George Gagnidze.
