Anna Netrebko / Elina Garanca / Ildebrando D'Arcangelo
Donizetti: Anna Bolena (2DVD)
With her sensational role debut at the Vienna State Opera, superstar diva Anna Netrebko displays a performance of rare vocal and dramatic power. The Russian soprano sings the role of the unjustly accused second wife of British King Henry VIII, “veering between indignant fury and tender righteousness” and demonstrating a new level of confidence in her technique with excellent “passagework, particularly in trills, and seamless runs even to the lowest notes”.
