This was to have been Gheorghiu's final Adina of the season. Cabell had been set to assume the role for the April 18 and 22 performances.
Rolando Villaz‹n previously withdrew from the same production due to acute laryngitis. Dimitri Pittas took over his remaining dates and will perform Nemorino April 15 and 18. Joseph Calleja, as scheduled, sings the role at the closing performance.
Cabell made her Met debut earlier this season as Pamina in the abridged English-language version of Mozart's The Magic Flute. The young American soprano earned international attention as the 2005 winner of the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World Competition. Next season, she returns to the Met as Musetta in La Bohme.
Conducted by Maurizio Benini, the cast of L'Elisir d'Amore also features Franco Vassallo as Belcore and Simone Alaimo as Dulcamara.
