Swenson has withdrawn from the production due to illness. In a statement Scott Altman, general and artistic director of Opera New Jersey, said, "The role of Rosalinde requires a singer with vivacious exuberance, commanding stage presence, and incredible panache along with vocal acrobatics. Lisa Vroman brings all those characteristics and a completely fresh dimension to the role; Opera New Jersey is thrilled to bring an artist of her caliber to our audiences."

Vroman will be part of a cast that also includes Allan Glassman as Eisenstein, Tonio DiPaolo as Alfred, Rachele Gilmore as Adele and Anthony Laciura as Frosh/Blind. Ira Siff directs.

Vroman's theatrical credits also include Les Misérables, Sweeney Todd in Concert, The Tender Land, HMS Pinafore and The Mikado.
