Erin Morley will not sing two productions this summers.
The coloratura soprano announced, via Instagram, that due to pregnancy she would not be singing “Der Rosenkavalier” at the Glyndebourne Festival and “Ariadne Auf Naxos” at the Santa Fe Opera.
As a result, Liv Redpath will takeover at Santa Fe as Zerbinetta and Elizabeth Sutphen and Louise Alder will alternate Sophie at the Glyndebourne Festival.
Morley, however, noted that she will return in September ready for the 2018-19 season. She also added that she would perform the Metropolitan Opera’s revival of “The Magic Flute.” She will also perform in the Met’s “Ring Cycle” revival and in “Les Dialogues des Carmélites.”
The soprano recently triumphed in “Candide” at Carnegie Hall, as well as at the LA Opera. She also sang Olympia in “Les Contes de Hoffmann” earlier this season at the Met.
