Does anyone out there know the title role in Berg’s Wozzeck? You may want to email your resume over to the Met, because they are going through Wozzecks faster than Pavarotti went through spaghetti! This was their cast change announcement from last night’s performance:
Daniel Sutin will sing the title role in tonight’s performance of Berg’s Wozzeck, replacing Thomas Hampson, who is recovering from bronchitis. Hampson’s illness also forced him to withdraw from the March 6 performance of Wozzeck, which was sung by Matthias Goerne. Hampson expects to be ready in time for the next scheduled performance of Wozzeck on March 13.
