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.
