Anna Netrebko in Il Trovatore

Today Anna Netrebko gave us a preview of "Tacea la Notte." She will make her role debut as Leonora this November. I am posting both arias on this page. Please tell us what you think of Netrebko's Leonora so far.

  1. David, I think that Leonora may be to much for one of my favorite sopranos. I get a sense of real pushing to get those low notes out. Price had similar issues when she was older and it would be a shame to see Anna damge her instrument. Once she is out of the chest register, though, she hits a couple out of the park.

    Kudos on the site, though, David; I check in regularly.
