Meanwhile, the role of Publio in Mozart’s “La Clemenza di Tito” will be performed by Han Kim instead of David Minseok Kang.

Finally, during the Italian Festival, Marcelo Puente will sing the role of Turiddu in “Cavalleria Rusticana” instead of Vittorio Grigolo. Grigolo however will still sing the role of Canio in “I Pagliacci.”
