“Since his Met debut in 2017 as Don José, Davila has also performed the title role of Don Carlo, Radamès in Aida, Giasone in Medea, and, most recently, Ismaele in Nabucco earlier this season. His performance highlights elsewhere include Chevalier des Grieux in Manon Lescaut at San Francisco Opera and in Barcelona and Valencia; Don José and Don Carlo at Washington National Opera; Cavaradossi in Tosca in Leipzig; Radamès in Valencia; Gen. Alfredo in the world premiere of Jimmy López Bellido’s Bel Canto at Lyric Opera of Chicago; Turiddu in Cavalleria Rusticana at the Macerata Opera Festival; Dick Johnson in La Fanciulla del West at Minnesota Opera; and Canio in Pagliacci and Turiddu at the Teatro di San Carlo in Naples.”

Thus saith the Met’s press office. Hopefully Beczala will be back in time for the first broadcast on Wednesday.
