We hear...

...that Mr. Lehman is doing a fine job as Tristan and that Voigt pulled out (perhaps mid-act? Text messages, so peskily telegraphic!) to be replaced by her cover in the second act. We wish her a speedy recovery, and look forward to hearing more soon.

I'm not a vocal expert and I was seeing my first tristan, so can't judge the singing, but I thought both covers were good. 'Mild und Liese' (sic) didn't sound as strong as it might have sounded, but I can't complain. They both got and deserved a nice ovation at the end.
