Netrebko calls sick on the Met

Flu-ridden, she has cancelled the first two performances of L’Elisir d’Amore on Jan 9 and 13.

The lucky sub is Canadian:¬†Andriana Chuchman. Not, you’ll be pleased to see, a shrinking violet. This will be her Met debut.



  • Keith McCarthy says:

    I saw Andriana, whom I knew nothing about, sing the final dress rehearsal of L’Elisiri at the Met this past Monday, and she was fantastic, confident and in full control of her voice and the role. She gave as good as she got from Ramon Vargas and Erwin Schrott (Dr. Dulcamara) and there seemed to be a real lovefest between the performers. A intoxicating production all around!
