The role of Lina in the Metropolitan Opera?s coming production of Verdi?s ?Stiffelio? will be shared between the American sopranos Sondra Radvanovsky and Julianna Di Giacomo. They are replacing Angela Marambio, the Chilean soprano, who has withdrawn, the Met said in a news release. Ms. Radvanovsky will sing the performances on Jan. 11 and 14, and the matinee of Jan. 30; Ms. Di Giacomo will sing the role on Jan. 19, 23 and 26. Both are performing the role for the first time at the Met. Ms. Radvanovsky previously sang Lina at London?s Royal Opera Covent Garden in 2007, and has performed in Verdi operas including ?Il Trovatore? at the Met. Ms. Di Giacomo made her Met debut as Clotilde in ?Norma? in 2007, and made her La Scala debut this past season as Lucrezia in Verdi?s ?I Due Foscari.?

The Met?s performances of ?Stiffelio? will be conducted by Pl?cido Domingo. Its cast also includes Jos? Cura in the title role, Andrzej Dobber as Stankar and Phillip Ens as Jorg.
