Myung-Whun Chung has canceled his participation in Teatro La Fenice’s upcoming performances of Puccini’s “La Bohème,” scheduled for March 16-25, 2018.

According to a press release, the conductor has canceled due to a car accident and is currently in recovery at the recommendation of his doctors. Chung will return to La Fenice for Verdi’s ‘Macbeth” in November and will lead the New Year’s Eve concert in 2018-19.

As a result, La Fenice has announced that Stefano Ranzani and Francesco Lanzillotta will alternate the production. Ranzani will conduct the March 16, 17, 18, 20, 24 and 25 performances while Lanzillotta will conduct March 21, 22 and 23 showcases.

“La Bohème” is set to star Ivan Ayon Rivas and Azer Zada alternating the role of Rodolfo and Selene Zanetti and Vittoria Ye as Mimì. Irina Dubrovskaya and Rosanna Lo Greco share the role of Musetta while Julian Kim and Bruno Taddia alternate Marcello.
