Netrebko's "Elisir" Live from the Met @Noon
Flu kept Russian mega-diva Anna Netrebko from opening the Met's "Elixir of Love" earlier this month - but she's back, and, says the New York Times, she's "right in the zone, singing with plushness, brilliance and spontaneity. She truly inhabited the role of Adina." And Netrebko's ex, bass-baritone Erwin Schrott, "stole every scene he was in" as the quack doctor who tries to peddle snake oil in her little town. Said the Times, "there was no hint of awkwardness in their stage relationship." But don't take the Times' word for it - hear tomorrow's show for yourself Saturday at noon on IPRClassical.
