Pronounced “oog,” as in Wowkle, that is. You may recall that La Cieca said something a few days ago about a rumored departure of soprano Andrea Gruber from a Met revival of La fanciulla del West scheduled for next season. Well, further information has filtered in that suggests a different story. You might say, in fact, that the Fanciulla has departed from Gruber. Latest word is that the revival of the Puccini western has been canceled, leaving both the soprano and her putative Dick (Salvatore Licitra) with some time on their hands midseason. Or will the Met recast the pair in some other suitable vehicle?
