Sondra Radvanovsky has canceled her upcoming performances of Verdi’s “Aida” at Orange.
The soprano was forced to cancel due to physical fatigue and will no longer portray the title role on August 2 and 5, 2017. The theater has yet to announce a replacement.
The starry cast will still include Anita Rachvelishvili as Amneris, Marcelo Álvarez as Radamès, Quinn Kelsey as Amonasro and Nicolas Courjal as Ramfis. Paolo Arrivabeni is slated to conduct the production.
Radvanovsky will return to the stage in September when she opens a new production of Bellini’s “Norma” at the Metropolitan Opera. The soprano is also scheduled to sing the role of Paulina in “Poliuto” at the Liceu in Barcelona and returns to the Opera National de Paris for “Il Trovatore” and “Un Ballo in Maschera.” She will also sing the title role in “Anna Bolena” at the Canadian Opera.
