Bryan Hymel, a native of New Orleans, stepped in to save the day. He could, however, only sing the first two performances because he had a catch a plane to sing the Prince in Dvorak’s “Rusalka” at London’s Royal Opera.
Texas-born tenor Chad Shelton, who started in Houston with the opera’s Young Artist Program and has since sung on major stages in America and in Europe, sang the role last Wednesday night and will, hopefully, complete the run which ends February 12 at the Wortham Theater Center.
