Congratulations to tenor Stephen Costello, who today was officially awarded the ceremonial title of Villazóneinspringer at the Vienna State Opera.
No, actually, he’s jumping into two performances of La boheme, replacing Rolando Villazón, on September 6 and 9.
According to the information La Cieca has received,
By mutual agreement between the Vienna State Opera and Rolando Villazón, it was decided that he will give some “catch-up” performances later this season. The dates will be announced in due course.
