“Rising Canadian star makes unscheduled Traviata debut”

from Slipped Disc, by Norman Lebrecht, original post here.

Joyce El-Khoury was not meant to be singing Violetta at Nederlandse Opera until May 17. But Marina Poplavskaya dropped out and she was on stage for the premiere. Fortunately, she’s also in Willy Decker’s production trailer.

UPDATE: After that, she has taken over the rest of the run.
