New tenor for Met's 'Lucia'

February 06, 2009|Associated Press

A Polish tenor who is one of opera's rising stars will replace famed tenor Rolando Villazon in a Metropolitan Opera performance transmitted live to movie theaters worldwide.

Opera fans' ears will be tuned to tenor Piotr Beczala on Saturday afternoon, when he sings the part of Edgardo in Donizetti's "Lucia di Lammermoor."

The Met said Villazon was ill with a cold.

Saturday's performance is part of "The Met: Live in HD" series, which reaches hundreds of movie theaters and other venues in the U.S., Asia and Europe.
