“Je veux vivre” January 6, 2008
Posted by Jeff in French, Netrebko and Villazón, Opera.
Anna Netrebko‘s latest triumph is her Juliette in Charles Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette, performed at the Met and broadcast this past December 14.
Here she is in the famous Act I waltz, from a March 2007 concert at the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées:
INTERVIEWER: Choose — would you rather have Netrebko’s voice or her legs?
CECILIA BARTOLI: Oh, one cannot separate them!
Good news from Vienna about Netrebko’s best-known partner.
