Tenor Andrea Shin To Make His Metropolitan Opera Debut In ‘Roméo et Juliette’

Charles Castronovo has canceled the opening night performance of Gounod’s “Roméo et Juliette” at the Metropolitan Opera.

The Met announced via Twitter that due to illness, Castronovo would not be able to perform. As a result, Andrea Shin will be making his Met debut replacing Castronovo.

Shin studied at Accademia della Scala, Mozarteum in Salzburg, and at Conservatoire in Wien and has been awarded prizes in numerous competitions including Voci Verdiane in Busseto and Hans Gabor Belvedere in Wien. He is part of the vocal ensemble at Theater in Karlsruhe and has performed such roles as Riccardo in “Un ballo in maschera,” Duca di Mantova in “Rigoletto,” Alfredo in “La Traviata,” and Cavaradossi in “Tosca.”

Castronovo, who originally replaced Bryan Hymel, is still scheduled for the last five performances.

Shin joins Ailyn Pérez, Karine Deshayes, Joshua Hopkins, and Kwangchul Youn. Plácido Domingo conducts Bartlett Sher’s production.
