Ms. Netrebko sang with a mesmerizing blend of steely resolve and seductive allure. And during the tour de force sleepwalking scene — Lady Macbeth’s final moments, when she imagines her hands covered with blood that cannot be washed away — Ms. Netrebko was in a zone, one moment emitting chilling outbursts, the next shaping haunted phrases with eerily hushed radiance.
