Judith Weir’s opera, Miss Fortune, first performed at the Bregenz Festival in 2011 and given its UK premiere in March this year by co-commissioner The Royal Opera, has had its forthcoming American first-performance cancelled. Santa Fe Opera, introducing its 2014 Season, advised the cancellation (Miss Fortune had been slated last year as part of Santa Fe’s new-opera initiative) while announcing that the American premiere of Dr Sun Yat-Sen by Chinese-born composer Huang Ruo will be staged instead.
