March 6, 2014 announcement from the Press Department:

"Matthias Goerne is stepping into the title role in tonight's performance of Berg's Wozzeck, replacing Thomas Hampson, who has withdrawn due to illness.

"The Met approached Goerne, who was in New York performing at Carnegie Hall, yesterday evening when the company's artistic staff learned of Hampson's withdrawal. Goerne sang a solo recital at Carnegie Hall and then considered the offer overnight before agreeing. He is currently en route to the Met where he will rehearse with Maestro James Levine and the company's staff directors. In a serendipitous twist, Goerne attended Monday morning's dress rehearsal of Wozzeck as a guest, allowing him a chance to see the production in advance."

The revival a gift of Robert L. Turner
