Classic Arts News   Cornelia G‹tz to Replace Erika Mikl‹sa in Met's Remaining Zauberfl‹ten
 
Coloratura soprano Erika Mikl‹sa, who has wowed audiences in person and on screen as the Queen of the Night in the Metropolitan Opera's current production of Mozart's Die Zauberfl‹te ("The Magic Flute"), has withdrawn from the remainder of the opera's run due to illness, according to an announcement from the house's management.

For the four remaining performances this season — February 21 and 24 and March 2 and 8 — she will be replaced by Cornelia G‹tz, who alternated in the role with Mikl‹sa earlier this season.

Joining G‹tz will be soprano Lisa Milne as Pamina, tenor Michael Schade as Tamino, baritone Rodion Pogossov as Papageno, and bass Vitalij Kowaljow as Sarastro (with Morris Robinson in the role on March 8). The production is the now-famous staging by Julie Taymor; conducting will be Met music director James Levine. For more information, visit www.metopera.org.
