Mezzo-Soprano Michelle DeYoung to Replace Eva-Maria Westbroek for MET Orchestra Concert on Sunday, October 14 at Carnegie Hall

Carnegie Hall announced today that mezzo-soprano Michelle DeYoung has graciously agreed to step in for Eva-Maria Westbroek, performing Wagner’s Wesendonck Lieder with The MET Orchestra under the baton of Semyon Bychkov on Sunday, October 14 at 3:00 p.m. Ms. Westbroek has cancelled her appearance due to illness. The previously announced October 14 program, which also includes Wagner’s Tannhäuser Overture and Richard Strauss’s Eine Alpensinfonie, remains unchanged. For further ticket information, the public may contact CarnegieCharge at 212-247-7800.

Michelle DeYoung has established herself as one of the most exciting artists of her generation, having appeared with many of the world’s leading orchestras and conductors, and at many of the finest opera houses, including the Metropolitan Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Houston Grand Opera, Seattle Opera, La Scala, Bayreuth Festival, Berlin Staatsoper, Opéra de Paris, and Théâtre du Châtelet. Among her many operatic roles are the title roles in Samson et Dalila and The Rape of Lucretia; Fricka, Sieglinde, and Waltraute in Wagner's Ring cycle; Kundry in Parsifal; Venus in Tannhäuser; Brangäne in Tristan und Isolde; Dido in Les Troyens; Eboli in Don Carlo; Marguerite in La damnation de Faust; Judith in Bluebeard’s Castle; Gertrude in Hamlet; and Jocasta in Oedipus Rex. She also created the role of the Shaman in the world premiere of Tan Dun’s The First Emperor at the Metropolitan Opera. Ms. DeYoung joined the MET Orchestra at Carnegie Hall for an acclaimed 2011 performance of Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde.

This season, Ms. DeYoung makes return appearances with the Boston Symphony Orchestra (in Boston and at Carnegie Hall), Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and The Philadelphia Orchestra, and performs in Europe with the Finnish, Swedish, and Stockholm radio symphony orchestras, the Royal Flemish Philharmonic, Staatskapelle Berlin, and Hamburg State Opera.
