San Francisco Opera Announces Cast Change for Verdi Concert

By Francisco Salazar

San Francisco Opera has announced a cast and program update for the June 30 Eun Sun Kim Conducts Verdi concert.

The company noted that due to illness, tenor Arturo Chacón-Cruz must withdraw from the concert. The tenor, who is currently performing in Europe,  has developed a bilateral ear infection which prevents him from international air travel.

As a result, the concert program has been updated due to this change.

The concert will see Kim conducting Nicole Car, Etienne Dupuis, and Soloman Howard in music from “Luisa Miller” and ‘Il Trovatore” in the first half and “Don Carlo” in the second half. Morgan Robinson is the stage director for the gala.
