Anna Bolena DVD
This is the DVD from the Wiener Staatsoper with Anna Netrebko as Anna and Elina Garanča as Jane Seymore. The style of the production is less authentic but otherwise similarly as somber as the Met production. I like Elina better than Ekaterina Gubanova simply because she seems like a legitimate rival to Netrebko. Who is fabulous, and equally fabulous in duets with Garanča. Anna does not over-sing as much as she does at the Met. I like this a lot. Netrebko is in her house.
