This would seem to make it even colder for the Met to dump Gary Lehman (who, it seems, was actually good -- without needing bonus points for the circumstance) from Saturday's moviecast in favor of yet another debutant (who, admittedly, is big in the part at Bayreuth and elsewhere). Of course, the way things are going they might both end up singing in it somehow.
UPDATE (9AM): Two articles on Lehman and his debut, from his hometown (Ohio) papers. The second one notes (about the moviecast):
The Met hasn't announced who will sing the role of Tristan for that show, and Lehman said he should know by Wednesday if he will appear in that performance.
UPDATE 2 (9PM): Cold... And killing a nice storyline.
