Brandon Jovanovich is set to replace Bryan Hymel in four performances of “Les Troyens.”

The Opéra National de Paris announced that Hymel, who was originally scheduled to perform all seven performances, will now only perform in the final three shows.

Hymel recently completed a production of “Les Vêspres Siciliennes” at the Bayerische Staatsoper and recently accepted a position at the Academy of Vocal Arts. He is also set to perform in a concert with Michael Fabiano and Matthew Polenzani at the Dallas Opera and is set to return to the Metropolitan Opera this season in “Rigoletto.”

Meanwhile, Jovanovich recently completed a production of “Les Troyens’ at the Wiener Staatsoper and is currently performing in a revival of “Rusalka” at the Wiener Staatsoper. Next up, he goes to the Bayerische Staatsoper for “La Fanciulla del West.”

“Les Troyens” opens on Jan. 22 and also stars Elina Garanca, Stéphanie d’Oustrac, Véronique Gens, and Christian Van Horn.
