The role of Lisa in Tchaikovsky’s opera The Queen of Spades has had to be recast at short notice. Soprano Elena Bezgodkova has unfortunately had to withdraw from the production with the Berliner Philharmoniker and Kirill Petrenko due to health reasons. This affects the performances as part of the Easter Festival at the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden from 9 April as well as the concert performances at the Philharmonie Berlin on 21 and 24 April. The Russian soprano Elena Stikhina will sing in her place.
The Festspielhaus Baden-Baden and the Berliner Philharmoniker are very grateful to Elena Stikhina for stepping in at such short notice.
