Just in: The Met is down to its third sub Romeomain
First Charles Castronovo was called in at the last minute to replace Bryan Hymel in Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette after Hymel failed to recover in time from a Munich bug.
Now Castronovo has called in sick. Next up for tonight’s performance is Andrea Shin, a Korean who will make his Met debut.
He is covering three different roles at the Met this season, but does not seem to have sung Roméo before.
Toi-toi to all.
