It was just months ago that Jay Hunter Morris was called up from cover status to take the stage in the starring role in the San Francisco Opera production of Siegfried.
Well it’s happened again. Gary Lehman (who was replacing Ben Heppner) is indisposed and cannot take the role of Siegfried in the upcoming premiere of Siegfried as the Metropolitan Opera rolls out the 3rd part of the Robert Le Page “Machine” Ring. Now Jay Hunter Morris will step in for the ailing Mr. Lehman.
We know he can do it! Hunter Morris has covered the Los Angeles Ring (Siegmund and both Siegfrieds), the Seattle Ring (also Siegmund and both Siegfrieds) and was set to cover in San Francisco.
Best wishes Jay – toi, toi, toi
UPDATE TUESDAY NOVEMBER 1 – DEVIL IN THE MACHINE?
