Covent Garden puts up two tenors for the price of onemain
The Latvian tenor Aleksandrs Antonenko is sick and has withdrawn from tonight’s Cav and Pag.
At short notice, they’ve called in two tenors. Turiddu in Cavalleria rusticana will be sung by the South Korean tenor Yonghoon Lee, who sang the role at the house a couple of weeks back.
The role of Canio in Pagliacci will be sung by Lithuanian tenor Kristian Benedikt, making his ROH debut.
