"Giuseppe Filianoti will sing Edgardo in Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor tonight, replacing Rolando Villazón who is ill.
Mr. Villazón is still scheduled to sing Edgardo on February 7 matinee.
Anna Netrebko sings the title role of Lucia, with Mariusz Kwiecien as Enrico, Ildar Abdrazakov as Raimondo and Marco Armiliato conducting"
To be honest I'm very glad of hearing this. Of course I don't want that Rolando is ill and have to cancel at all, but I'm happy about that he cares more about himself ! It's better that he cancelles one production and take a break than singing if he is not feeling well and force his voice.
