This is late, but I just caught up with it: Marcello Giordani, who spent last Saturday afternoon playing Faust at the Met, spent last Saturday evening playing Pinkerton in Madam Butterfly--a stand-in for Roberto Aronica. What sort of precedents are there for this, I wonder? I can remember a few years back in London when I saw one guy play Prince Hal (Henry V) in all three Shakespeare Henry plays in one day. But tht's just talk. How often does anyone do it with singing?
