My friend Jean hates Mozart. She hated playing him on the piano and hated singing him. In particular she hated "Deh vieni non tardar," the great aria from Nozze di Figaro, the one that Cecilia refused to sing when she sang Susanna at the Met. Maybe Cecilia hates it, too.

So Jean watches the ARTS channel all day, and one day someone came on singing "Deh vieni non tardar," and she actually liked it. Who can have achieved this miracle? It turned out to be Anna Netrebko.
