Alvarez out of Attila, Giovanni Meoni In!

The Metropolitan Opera announced yesterday that Baritone, Carlos Alvarez will not be performing in tonight’s premiere of Verdi’s “Attila.” Instead, “Giovanni Meoni will make his Met debut singing the role of Ezio in the premiere of Verdi’s Attila, tomorrow evening, replacing Carlos Alvarez, who is ill […]He has previously sung the role of Ezio in Bari.”

Always exciting to see a new singer get a big chance, but we are also wishing a fast recovery to Mr. Alvarez.

Attila premieres TONIGHT at 8pm. Interestingly, though, it is more the “fashion” than the singing in this one that is attaining publicity.  Let’s hope that the performance tonight shifts the focus somewhat to where it rightfully belongs.
