Opéra de Paris Makes Major Changes for ‘I Capuletti e I Montecchi’ Broadcast

By Francisco Salazar
The Opéra de Paris has announced a cast change for its production of “I Capuletti e i Montecchi.”

The company noted that for the Sept. 29 performance Ruth Iniesta will sing the role of Giuletta replacing Julie Fuchs who is unwell.

This is the second performance that Iniesta performs in the run as she also filled in for Fuchs for the Sept. 27 performance.

Iniesta recently made her role debut as Giuletta at the Teatro Massimo di Catania. Her role debut was broadcast on Rai 5 for Italian audiences.

The Spanish soprano joins a cast that includes Anna Goryachova, Jean Teitgen, Francesco Demuro, and Krzysztof Bączyk. Speranza Scapucci conducts the performance which is set to be broadcast on and also, with the help of FRA cinema, in UGC cinemas, as part of their “Viva l’Opéra!” season.

The performance is also set to be performed in a concert version as a result of a national and interprofessional strike followed by some of the Opera’s staff.
