Smith with Lyric Opera of Chicago Success
Roy Cornelius Smith stepped in to replace Marcello Giordani for three performances as Dick Johnson in La Fanciulla del West with Lyric Opera of Chicago earlier this month. Mr. Giordani was called back to Italy due to a family illness. In his role debut, Mr. Smith received three cheering standing ovations. His next scheduled appearances are with the Concertgebouw Orchestra in Braunfels' Te Deum and with Deutsche Oper Berlin to reprise his acclaimed performances of Calaf in Turandot.
