Two days to learn new role – no probs!

Soprano Marlis Peterson had two days to learn a new role for the Met’s new production of Thomas’ “Hamlet.”

Natalie Dessay was scheduled to play Ophelia and dropped out at the last minute. Marlis was already singing in Vienna, so had to show up in New York for a crash course.

She got rave reviews – you can hear her performance with the Met Opera broadcast this Saturday at noon on Classical MPR.
