A few days ago I wrote about Anna Netrebko and Rolando Villazon. I feel rather embarrassed about this, since it is based entirely on gossip from other bloggers and not at all on anything I know personally. Others don't seem to think things are quite that bad.

Of course, cracking a high note in the big leagues is pretty disastrous.

Many thanks for this post. I only wish all these people who make hasty judgements read this. I really like your approach to blogging. This kind of attitude is very rare nowadays.
Other opera bloggers criticize Netrebko and Villazon for things they themselves could be blamed for. People forget that once words enter reality they create it. But since flashy headlines and strong opinions sell well some people can't resist pleasing their own egos.

I agree pretty much with the previous comment. A couple of days ago, reading the comments on one of those must-to-link very-famous blogs, one of them starting saying that he/she had never see Netrebko, to follow to brutally critizice her and her whole career, taking as a basis a short Youtube audioclip.
