The Palau de la Música Catalana has announced that soprano Malin Byström will replace Lise Davidsen for a concert on Dec. 3, 2021.

Per the statement, Davidsen had to cancel her participation in the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra tour with conductor Edward Gardner for reasons beyond the control of the Palau de la Música Catalana.

The program for the concert includes György Ligeti’s “Melodien,” Richard Strauss‘ “Vier Letzte Lieder,” and Tchaikovsky‘s Symphony No. 4.

Byström is a renowned soprano who has performed at the greatest opera venues, including the Metropolitan Opera House, Wiener Staatsoper, Royal Opera House Covent Garden, De Nationale Opera, Oper Frankfurt, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Teatro Real, and Bolshoi, among others.

Davidsen is currently in the midst of a run of Wagner’s “Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg” at the Metropolitan Opera House in New York.
