Anna Netrebko--what else?
We have this news:
"Anna Netrebko - Verdi is the first album in history by a female classical singer to hit #1 on the Austrian pop charts, and is also #6 in Germany, #8 in Denmark, and #1 on Russian iTunes!"
Perhaps my opinion is not really relevant, but I will say a few words. The sound of her voice at this point is very pleasing. Of course, with Netrebko you don't get the full experience without the acting, but nevertheless it is a very impressive recording. She is at her peak now. I don't know that I agree with her that she shouldn't sing La Contessa, though.
It's nice to see this much excitement over an opera singer.
