The Gran Teatre del Liceu has announced a cast change for its production of Massenet’s “Manon.”

The company said that for the April 23 performance, Soprano Nadine Sierra will sing the role of Manon, replacing Amina Edris who has pharyngitis.

Sierra is currently headlining the first cast of “Manon” and sang the April 22 performance. She is also set to sing the April 24 performance, which will mean the soprano will sing three days in a row.

For the April 23 performance, Sierra will join a cast that includes Pene Pati, Jarrett Ott, and Jean-Vincent Blot. Marc Minkowski conducts the production.

Edris returns to the stage on April 26 presentation.
