Nadine Sierra misses out on London debut

The US soprano was due to open the Covent Garden season in Richard Jones’s new production of La Bohème, but she has cried off.

Her replacements are, if anything, more interesting.

One is the Lebanese-Canadian Joyce El-Khouri (pictured) who is rising faster than Icarus. The remaining dates will be covered by the Romanian-born British soprano Simona Mihai.

The rest of the cast includes Nicole Car, Michael Fabiano and Mariusz Kwiecień.

  • Sierra was supposed to sing Musetta, not Mimi.
    It looks like Mihai will take over from her as Musetta in the first cast, and then El-Khouri will sing Musetta in the second cast when Mihai (as planned) takes over from Car as Mimi.
