The Italian Ferruccio Furlanetto has decided that Boris Ismailov in Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk is not for him. The Salzburg festival has called in a Bolshoi bass, Dmitry Ulyanov .

And the Russian tenor Maxim Aksenov has been replaced as Sergei in the Shostakovih opera by the American Brandon Jovanovich.

Nina Stemme sings the title role. Mariss Jansons conducts.

    Brandon Jovanovich did a superb job as Sergei in Vienna in April.
