Bo Skovhus Replaced in Vienna's "Don Giovanni"

Bo Skovhus (L) & Adam Plachetka as Don Giovanni
We have covered the current production of Don Giovanni at the Vienna State Opera, due primarily to a rotating cast filled with barihunks. Much like Salzburg, they have filled the roles of Don Giovanni, Leporello and Masetto with certifiable hunks. The current production had featured the seemingly ageless Bo Skovhus in the title role, but he had to withdraw for the remaining four performances due to illness. He is being replaced by Adam Plachetka, a Czech native who has been a member of the Vienna State Opera.

Alex Esposito and Tae Joong Yang
The role of Leporello is being sung by our favorite exponent of the role, Alex Esposito (will someone please cast this guy in the U.S.). Masetto is being sung by Tae Joong Yang, who we recently introduced to readers.
  Tickets are still available for the remaining four performances online. Here is Adam Plachetka singing Leporello's "Catalogue Aria" at a recent gala concert:
