Bass-barihunk Keith Miller has just canceled the remainder of his performances of his role debut as Escamillo in Carmen at the Glimmerglass Festival, citing “health reasons.” His first performance was last Saturday. No replacement casting has yet been announced for the remaining 14 performances through August 23. 

This cancellation may in fact not be the most startling news coming out of Cooperstown this summer, but La Cieca will have to ask the cher public to be patient for a bit as she gathers further information.
