Bad News/Good News from Washington National Opera

Dear WNO patron,

Deborah Voigt, originally scheduled to perform the role of Isolde in Tristan and Isolde September 15–27, has regrettably withdrawn from the production.

Internationally renowned Swedish soprano Iréne Theorin will sing the performances on September 15, 18, 21, and 24. Acclaimed British soprano Alwyn Mellor will sing the final performance on September 27.

So. I am bummed about not seeing Deborah Voigt live and in person (even if only from the cheap seats); but somehow, I just had a feeling she might withdraw (or maybe I heard a rumor). And I am thrilled to get to see and hear Iréne Theorin! 

Below is Theorin's Liebestod from Bayreuth.
