Netrebko in London

If I could afford it, I should have stayed over in London to see Anna Netrebko sing La Traviata. Luckily I will get to see her in San Fran next summer. This review is fun. When she has been really good, she jumps up and down in the bows. It's the complete performance, you see.

He thought Jonas was callow, not a bad description of Alfred. I think he will not become all he can be until he does more Wagner, and does him in the big style he requires.

My friends all loved the Baden Baden Gala DVD that I took to the party on Sunday. None of them had ever heard of Elīna Garanča. They wanted to see Beverly Sills and Marilyn Horne. I am trying to avoid the trap of loving only people I heard in my youth.
