From BBC - December 14, 2017

Bryn Terfel has pulled out of the Met Opera's production of Tosca, to take "enforced rest due to vocal fatigue".

His departure means the ill-fated production, which is due to open in two weeks, has lost its entire main cast.

First to go was star tenor Jonas Kaufmann, followed by soprano Kristine Opolais, who had the title role.

Levine has said sexual misconduct allegations against him are "unfounded".
