Substitutes for Elena Stikhina, Anita Rachvelishvili, Fabio Sartori and René Pape in Verdis “Messa da Requiem”

09 Mar 2022

Soprano Elena Stikhina, mezzo-soprano Anita Rachvelishvili, tenor Fabio Sartori and bass René Pape have unfortunately had to cancel their participation in the performances of Giuseppe Verdi’s Messa da Requiem under the baton of Daniel Barenboim from 11 to 13 March due to illness. Susanne Bernhard will stand in for Elena Stikhina, Marina Prudenskaya will take over for Anita Rachvelishvili, the tenor part will now be sung by Michael Spyres. Tareq Nazmi, who, like Susanne Bernhard, will make his debut with the Berliner Philharmoniker during these concerts, will sing in René Pape’s place.
