[DrB] So did you see it? Did you like it?
[DE, known to be a rabid Netrebko fan] Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
Actually-I couldn't find it at Barnes & Noble--and had no time to hunt elsewhere--but met friends at the Shakespeare show a week ago--and they practically mugged me --insisting I come see their new video -- so I grabbed [D] and we went up to their house on Sunday (55 inch projection TV!!)--sat down--turned on the video-and didn;t move for 2 1/2 hours. I thought I would die at the end of the first act. Migawd. I have now gone to Borders and bought the one copy they have--ordered another three as gifts for people. Words cannot convey how exciting that show is--how utterly gorgeous Anna is--how well the set and staging support the story.
[DrB] It was far beyond my wildest imaginings. I don't even like La Traviata. It should come with a medical warning. "If you are in any danger of heart failure, check with your doctor before viewing." Can I use your mini review?
[DE] Sure--use whatever you want. Just get me a date with her!
Medical warning--that's GOOD!
