Bryan Hymel has canceled the full run of “Les Vêpres Siciliennes” at the Bayerische Staatsoper.

The tenor announced the news via social next work with the following statement, “It is with heavy heart that I have had to withdraw from the Bayerische Staatsoper’s production of Les Vêpres Siciliennes. This is a role which I love and have lived with for the past 4 years. Our team has worked so hard to tell this story and it pained me to not be able to show the audience what we had created. This is why I insisted on singing the premier even though I was not fully recovered. The first half of my season has seen 37 performances and in order to continue on that same trajectory, I need to give my self sufficient time to heal. I send my sincerest thanks to all my wonderful colleagues and everyone at the theater for their support and understanding! Apologies to all who hoped to see me sing this role in the following weeks and I cannot wait for the reprise of this production during the summer festival.”

The Bayerische Staatsoper has yet to announce a replacement, although Leonardo Caimi has replaced Hymel for the last two performances. Caimi is currently finishing up a run of “Cavalleria Rusticana” at La Monnaie and is scheduled to perform Mascagni’s opera on the same day as the fourth performance of “Les Vêpres Siciliennes” at the Bayerische Staatsoper.

Hymel returns for summer performances of “Les Vêpres Siciliennes” at the Bayerische Staatsoper and is scheduled to return to the stage for “Roméo et Juliette” at the Metropolitan Opera.
