Metropolitan Opera Announces A Cast Change Advisory For Götterdämmerung
Jay Hunter Morris will sing the role of Siegfried in the new production premiere of Wagner’s Götterdämmerung on January 27, and in the performances on February 7 and 11. He replaces Gary Lehman, who has withdrawn due to the continued effects of a viral infection. Stephen Gould will sing the role of Siegfried as scheduled in the January 31 and February 3 performances. The February 11 matinee of Götterdämmerung will be transmitted worldwide as part of The Met: Live in HD series.
Morris sang the title role in the new production premiere of Siegfried on October 27, a part he repeats on November 1 and 5 matinee. Siegfried will be transmitted as part of The Met: Live in HD series on November 5. Morris made his Met debut in 2007 as Števa in Janácek’s Jenufa.
The Met would like to thank San Diego Opera for releasing Mr. Morris from an engagement which conflicted with these Götterdämmerung performances.
