Canadian Soprano, Andriana Chuchman makes Met debut tonight in Donizetti’s “L’Elisir D’Amore”

Fresh off the news of Opera Hamilton’s untimely and sad closing (there is always hope that the community of Hamilton will pull together and support the long-existing company), it is more than exciting as it is to hear news of an upcoming debut for a Canadian opera singer. Of course, No one is happy to hear about Ms. Netrebko falling ill, but it is flu season and in this case Ms. Chuchman has lucked out (Ms. Netrebko is scheduled to sing a show of beloved Russian works at “Le Poisson Rouge” in NYC later this month, as well as the rest of the run of Adina’s).  Already set to make her debut later in February as Miranda in the Met’s “The Enchanted Island,” Ms. Chuchman’s debut comes earlier and in a role more likely to establish her internationally and as a leading soprano. She will be singing Adina alongside tenor Ramon Vargas for the first two performances of the year and I wish her a hearty “In bocca al lupo.” We are all wishing great things for this Canadian singer.  Let’s keep opera thriving in Canada!!!
