Jennifer Rowley will replace Sonya Yoncheva in Puccini’s “Tosca” for concert performances with the Philadelphia Orchestra.

The orchestra announced that “Rowley has graciously agreed to appear in the title role of The Philadelphia Orchestra’s upcoming performances of ‘Tosca.'”

Yoncheva was originally scheduled to perform in the role but withdrew due to a double ear infection and had to continue treatment in Europe.
Rowley recently performed the role of at the Metropolitan Opera for which OperaWire noted, “Jennifer Rowley exuded allure from the start.” She also performed Leonora in “Il Trovatore” at the Met earlier in January. This summer she appears at the Teatro Nuovo and the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino and next season Rowley is slated to sing “Adriana Lecouvreur” and “Tosca” at the Met.

The performances of “Tosca” will take place as scheduled on May 12, 16, and 19 and also stars Yusif Eyvazov and Ambrogio Maestri.  Yannick Nézet-Séguin conducts all performances.
