Licitra out Giordani in

The Metropolitan Opera has just reported that Salvatore Licitra will not be singing this years run of Ernani. This is already the second high profile cancellation that Licitra is involved in at the Met. A few years ago Licitra also pulled out of a new production of Il Trovatore. Marcello Giordani and Roberto DeBiaso will share the role of Ernani. It is not clear yet who will get the HD performance. However from Giordani's track record at the Met, he will most likely be singing the HD performance.

This the third high profile cancellation for the New 2011-2012 season. Angela Gheorghiu already cancelled all engagements of Faust and Elina Garanca cancelled all performances of Anna Bolena.

Giordani will be singing the HD Performance on February 25, 2012
