A Wonderful CD and a Great Bargain!
on 19 October 2013
I bought this CD because I was interested in the live performances of Netrebko (since I think that she is an exceptional actress and singer). It was a pleasant surprise! A nice variety of scenes and arias from Netrebko's entire repertoire (Bellini, Donizzeti, Verdi, Puccini, Gounod, Offenbach, Prokofiev and even Mozart), everything performed beautifully. My favourite tracks are from Romeo and Juliet (co-starring Roberto Alagna), Les Contes d'Hoffmann (opposite to the magnificent tenor Joseph Calleja), La Boheme (with the emotional Piotr Beczala) and Rigoletto. Plus props to the amazing booklet (with colored photos, reviews and libretto). In general, I think that this CD is an essential to every opera fan!
