“Ah, fors’è lui” January 4, 2008Posted by Jeff in Giuseppe Verdi, Italian, Netrebko and Villazón, Opera.
Anna Netrebko nails the Olympic women’s triathlon of Italian opera, the last ten minutes of the first act of Giuseppe Verdi’s La Traviata: “Ah, fors’è lui” followed by “Follie! Delirio vano è questo!”, concluding with “Sempre libera”. Briefly accompanied by her best-known operatic partner, Rolando Villazón.
And the answer to his question is yes (it certainly did for me …)
