The Teatro San Carlo has announced a cast change for its concert performance of Verdi’s “Macbeth.”

The company said that due to illness Sondra Radvanovsky will not sing the role of Lady Macbeth on March 9. As a result, Daniela Schillaci will take over the role.

Schillaci has performed at the Teatro La Fenice in Venice, the Teatro Massimo Bellini in Catania, the Teatro Verdi di Trieste, and Opera di Roma. She has also performed at the Mariinsky Theatre and the Yekaterinburg State Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre.

She joins a cast that includes Luca Salsi, Alexander Vinogradov, Giulio Pelligra, and Francesco Castoro. Marco Armiliato conducts.

Radvanovsky is set to return for the three final performances.
