Mariella Devia just canceled her Traviata debut at Scala -- announced for this coming Tuesday -- because of a throat infection. She had already missed the final rehearsal. Irina Lungu will appear as Violetta replacing Devia.
This Traviata, of course, used to be Andrea Chenier directed by Terry Gilliam with Marcelo Alvarez and Fiorenza Cedolins, then it morphed into Butterfly with Cedolins, then into Traviata with Devia, and now it's Traviata with Lungu. Who knows who or what will appear on that stage on Tuesday (Opera Chic is not going and neither should you).
