The Bayerische Staatsoper has announced a new cast change for its production of “Aida.”

The company said that Jamie Barton will perform the role of Amneris replacing Eve-Maud Hubeaux who is ill.

The change comes after Hubeaux replaced Anita Rachvelishvili, who was originally announced in the role.

Barton recently performed the role of Amneris at the Lyric Opera of Chicago and the Teatro Real de Madrid.

Barton is set to join a cast that includes Jonas Kaufmann, Elena Guseva, George Petean, Vitalij Kowaljow, and Alexandros Stavrakakis. Marco Armiliato conducts the production by Damiano Michelietto.

Hubeaux returns to the production on April 25 and 28, 2024.
