Jennifer Rowley will sing the title role in tonight’s performance of Puccini’s Tosca, replacing Anna Netrebko who is ill.
Rowley sang the title role of Tosca in the production earlier this season. Also this year she sang all performances of Leonora in Verdi’s Il Trovatore at the Met. She made her company debut as Musetta in Puccini’s La Bohème in 2014, and last year received critical acclaim making her role debut at short notice as Roxane in Alfano’s Cyrano de Bergerac. Her other performances include the title role in Barber’s Vanessa with Toledo Opera and as Musetta in La Bohème at the Royal Opera, Covent Garden.
Sir David McVicar’s new staging of Tosca opened on New Year’s Eve. The cast for Tosca includes Yusif Eyvazov as Cavaradossi and Michael Volle as Scarpia. Bertrand de Billy conducts.
Upcoming performances are May 8 and 12, 2018.
