Now it’s personal: Bryan Hymel cancels the Metmain
From the Gelb feed:
Bryan Hymel has withdrawn from Verdi’s Rigoletto, due to personal reasons. Francesco Demuro will sing the Duke on March 6, 9, 15, and 20; Matthew Polenzani will sing April 26, May 1, and 4; and Stephen Costello will sing May 10. #castchange

The American tenor, 39, had a hard run of cancellations last year. Last month in Paris he pulled out of Les Troyens ‘for family reasons’.
