Classic Arts News   Patricia Racette to Step In as Musetta for Tomorow's Matinee of Bohème at Met
 
Patricia Racette, the acclaimed soprano who is in New York this fall to sing Elisabetta in Don Carlo and Nedda in I pagliacci at the Metropolitan Opera, is unexpectedly adding another role into the mix.

On short notice, Racette will be singing Musetta in tomorrow's matinee performance of La Bohème. She will replace Susannah Glanville, who has fallen ill.

Musetta is, incidentally, the role in which Racette made her Met debut in 1995.

Tomorrow's cast also includes Angela Marambio as Mimì, Rolando Villaz‹n as Rodolfo and Peter Coleman-Wright as Marcello. Plšcido Domingo conducts.

For next week's Bohèmes on Tuesday evening and Saturday afternoon (November 21 and 25), soprano Cynthia Lawrence will fill in for Glanville.
