It is fun to read in Opera News about the triumphs of Anna Netrebko as she travels from place to place.

In Los Angeles she made a big splash in Gounod's Roméo et Juliette, giving it an aura of intense sexuality. Sex is good. Sex in opera is very good.

In Vienna she lit up the stage in Donizetti's L'elisir d'amore.

She radiates sparks on the stage. Maybe she will become one of those performers people follow from town to town. Maybe she already is.
