New York's Metropolitan Opera to change tenors

New York's Metropolitan Opera experiences shift of roles.

Roberto Alagna will sing Radames in Verdi's "Aida" on Tuesday night in place of Marco Berti, who is ill. Alagna has not sung Radames since last December at Milan's Teatro alla Scala. During the second performance of that run on Dec. 10, he was booed following "Celeste Aida" in the first act, walked off stage and never returned.

Alagna was scheduled to sing Benjamin Franklin Pinkerton on Monday night and was to be replaced in that role by Marcello Giordani.

Earlier this season, both Alagna and Giordani filled in as the male lead on Gounod's "Romeo and Juliette" because of ill tenors.
