Dimitris Tiliakos hits the ROH! Updated!

Tiliakos as Boccanegra in Athens

Due to illness Simon Keenlyside is unable to sing the role of Rodrigo, Marquis of Posa and Pumeza Matshikiza is unable to sing the role of Tebaldo in Don Carlo with The Royal Opera on Tuesday 17 June.

The role of Rodrigo will now be sung by Greek baritone Dmitri Tiliakos marking his debut with The Royal Opera. He recently made his debut in the role of Rodrigo at the Opéra-Bastille in Paris. Other recent roles include his role debut as Simon Boccanegra for Greek National Opera and Iago (Otello) in Graz and at the Warsaw Festival.

We remind you that Dimitri Tiliakos has already stepped in for Dmitri Hvorostovsky at the Paris Don Carlo (where he sang the June the 10th performance and will also sing the one on June the 22nd).

In bocca al lupo to our Dimitri!

I was there on Tuesday night and while very sorry to miss Keenlyside's no doubt wonderful performance, I must say Tiliakos acquitted himself beautifully. A rich, flexible voice and a fine dramatic stage presence. Bravo!
