Ms. Netrebko seized the moment to make a strong statement about how a major singer develops her artistry as she matures... I haven’t heard this music sung so excitingly since, as a teenager, I heard the awesome Birgit Nilsson at the Met.
Anna Netrebko’s purring soprano delivered the goods, the singer drawing us in with greater containment and vulnerability than expected...Netrebko phrased with impeccable beauty and had no qualms with floating some of the notes and singing with pianissimo sound.
