Piotr will be Vaudemont !!!

The Festspielhaus Baden-Baden announced today that Piotr Beczala will sing the Vaudemont in all 4 performances of Iolanta in July. The translated announcement:

Anna Netrebko and Piotr Beczala

After Rolando Villazón cancelled with a heavy heart the "Iolanta" production, we can happily announce you today, that Anna Netrebko will have a fantastic tenor next to her in summer: Piotr Beczala. The Polish singer came already once a few days ago as the "white chevalier" to rescue Anna Netrebko. He stood in for Rolando Villazón in the opera "Lucia di Lammermoor", which was on the New York Met's schedule and broadcasted live in cinemas all over the world. Piotr Beczala came, sang, conquered. Audience and critics acclaimed the singer rightly. The New York success could recur in Baden-Baden. Piotr Beczala already knows the role of "Vaudemont" in Tchaikovsky's opera "Iolanta" and is looking very forward to his debut at the biggest german opera house. The lyrical tenor was born and skilled in south Poland. Regularly commitments drive him to the London's Convent Garden opera, the San Francisco opera, to Hamburg, Berlin, Frankfurt and Munich. In 2006 he made his debut at the Milan's Scala and the New York's Metropolitan Opera, too.

Well that are great news ! =))
