Tenor Ivan Magrì To Make Debut At Vienna State Opera in ‘Rigoletto’

Ivan Magrì will replace Juan Diego Flórez as the Duke of Mantua in Verdi’s “Rigoletto” at the Vienna State Opera. It will be his debut with the company.

He will perform alongside Paolo Rumetz’s interpretation of the title role and Aida Garifullina, who will take on Gilda.

Magrì has performed at the Bayerische Staatsoper, Staatsoper Berlin, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Teatro dell’Opera di Roma, Opernhaus Zürich, Dutch National Opera in Amsterdam, Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires and Theatro Municipal in São Paulo, among others.

Flórez announced his withdrawal from the production on Monday, citing, “With great regret, I have to cancel my two upcoming performances of Rigoletto at the Wiener Staatsoper. Following my doctor’s orders, I need to rest my voice in order to recover from a tracheitis. I’m sorry for the inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your understanding.”

The production of “Rigoletto” kicks off on June 7, 2018.
