  • I saw her Carmen in Berlin’s Deutsche Opera in 2015. Wonderful voice! The MET thing could be a big break for her.

  • If I am recalling correctly, Denyce Graves was unknown in London when called upon to replace an ailing Carmen with laryngitis on VERY short notice. of course ti was a triumph for all concerned.

  • She was always supposed to perform half of the run anyway, I think, and was likely the understudy as well. She is now simply doing the whole run.
