The Taipei Symphony Orchestra’s (台北市立交響樂團) production of Verdi’s Aida at the Taipei Arena (台北小巨蛋) opens on Oct. 23, with a second performance on Oct. 25. Salvatore Licitra, who was originally to perform the role of Radames, died last month as a result of a traffic accident. He will be replaced by tenor Mario Malagnini, a winner of the Tito Gobbi Competition, the Belvedere Competition and other prestigious awards. Malagnini will be supporting soprano Isabelle Kabatu in the title role, with mezzo-soprano Rossana Rinaldi as Amneris, counter tenor Juan Pons and bass Giacomo Prestia. Ticket sales have resumed after temporarily being halted following the news of the tenor’s death. Tickets are NT$500 to NT$4,800 and are available through NTCH ticketing, online at www.artsticket.com.tw, by calling (02) 3393-9888, or at 7-Eleven ibon kiosks. Because of the change in lineup, refunds without deduction can be obtained by calling NTCH ticketing during office hours (Taipei office: (02) 3393-9888) or at the ticketing office of the National Theater or the National Concert Hall.
