While Vladimir Putin wages war on Ukraine, superstar soprano Anna Netrebko who was to have made her long-awaited Met role debut as Puccini’s icy princess has withdrawn from her upcoming Met performances in Puccini's Turandot, as well as the run of Verdi's Don Carlo.

Netrebko will be replaced in Turandot by soprano Liudmyla Monastyrska. Tenor Yonghoon Lee is the bold prince determined to win Turandot’s love, alongside soprano Michelle Bradley as the devoted servant Liù and legendary bass Ferruccio Furlanetto as the blind king Timur.

Ukrainian soprano Liudmyla Monastyrska, who has sung Turandot previously at the Ukrainian National Opera and the Bolshoi, made her Met debut in 2012, singing the title role in Verdi’s Aida, which she again sang with the company in 2014. Her other Met roles include the title character in Puccini’s Tosca, Santuzza in Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana, and Abigaille in Verdi’s Nabucco. She has also performed widely at many leading opera houses, including Milan’s La Scala, Royal Opera House Covent Garden, Bavarian State Opera, Vienna State Opera, Berlin State Opera, Barcelona’s Gran Theatre del Liceu, and many others.

Marco Armiliato conducts Puccini’s stirring opera, which takes the stage in the company’s dazzling, ever-popular production by Franco Zeffirelli. 

A replacement for the role of Elisabeth de Valois in the 2022–23 performances of Don Carlo will be announced at a later date.
