December 02, 1987|DANIEL CARIAGA

Italian soprano Mara Zampieri, scheduled to sing four performances as Lady Macbeth in Los Angeles Music Center Opera's production of Verdi's "Macbeth," Dec. 11-21, has canceled her appearance here.

Zampieri's U. S. manager, Alan Green of Columbia Artists Management Inc., said the soprano hurt her leg in an accident in her apartment in Venice, Italy. Her leg is in a cast and she will be unable to travel this month.

Zampieri will be replaced in the four "Macbeth" performances (Dec. 11, 14, 17, 21) by American soprano Grace Bumbry, who is being released from current "Macbeth" rehearsals at the Metropolitan Opera in order to sing here, according to John Howlett of Music Center Opera.
