Teddy Tahu Rhodes retires Escamillo

The Met press office: “Dwayne Croft will sing the role of Escamillo in Bizet’s Carmen on February 9, 13, and 16, replacing Teddy Tahu Rhodes, who determined in rehearsals that the role was no longer suitable for his voice. Casting for the performances on February 20, 23 matinee, 26, and March 1 will be announced at a later date.”

  1. This is very interesting inasmuch as he sang a fantastic Escamillo in the HD broadcast of Carmen a couple of years ago. Apparently, at the last minute he replaced Marius Kweichen for the HD broadcast performance. He will be missed.
