The Metropolitan Opera has announced a new cast change for its “Aida” performance Dec. 17.
The company noted that tenor Limmie Pulliam will make his Met debut as Radamès, replacing Brian Jagde, who was originally scheduled to sing.
Pulliam has performed with the LA Opera, Vashon Opera, Livermore Valley Opera, and the Cleveland Orchestra. His repertoire includes the works of Verdi, Puccini, Leoncavallo, and Beethoven. This season he is set to perform with the Tulsa Opera and Portland Opera, among others.
The cast change marks the second today for the performance, following the announcement that Anita Rachevlishvili had canceled all of her remaining performances in the run.
Pulliam is set to join a cast that includes Olesya Petrova, Quinn Kelsey, Christian Van Horn, and Michelle Bradley. Paolo Carignani conducts.
Brian Jagde returns to the production on Dec. 21, 2022.
