UPDATE: La Cieca now has audio evidence of Micaela Carosi‘s dress rehearsal of Aïda.

PREVIOUSLY: La Cieca has heard of sweeping changes of cast in important Verdi revivals across the pond: Elisabete Matos has suddenly been dropped from Rome Opera’s Riccardo Muti-helmed Nabucco, with Csilla Boross jumping in as Abigaille.

Meanwhile, over at London’s Royal Opera, Micaela Carosi has vanished from the title role of Aïda after what La Cieca heard described as her “execrable” performance at the general rehearsal. Liudmyla Monastyrska is now scheduled to sing the first night on Friday.
