Charles Castronovo To Replace Bryan Hymel In Roméo Et Juliette

Bryan Hymel has canceled performances of Gounod’s “Roméo et Juliette.”

The Metropolitan Opera announced that Hymel canceled due to illness. As a result, Charles Castronovo will sing the role of Roméo.

Castronovo returns to the Met after singing an acclaimed run of “Die Zauberflöte” earlier this season. He recently sang a run of “Roméo” at the Badishes Staatstheater and Don José in “Carmen” in Toulouse. He is slated to return to the Bayerische Staatsoper, Royal Opera House, Deutsche Oper Berlin and Opera National de Paris next season.

Hymel returns to the stage for “Carmen” in Las Palmas. He also sings at the Deustche Oper Berlin and Opera National de Paris.

“Roméo et Juliette” is set to star Ailyn Perez and Joshua Hopkins. Placido Domingo conducts the entire run, which is set open on April 23 and runs through May 12.
