Simon has withdrawn from all performances on the advice of his doctor: he must rest his voice.

Email from the Royal Opera House

“…I am terribly sorry to have to tell you that we have just been informed that our Figaro, Simon Keenlyside, has received strict instructions from his doctor to completely rest his voice. It is therefore with great regret that he has had to withdraw from the role of Figaro for all of our performances. We are, of course, very disappointed for Simon and wish him a speedy and successful recovery…”
