By Tchaikovsky. The Metropolitan Opera. Captured in HD. Screening in cinemas nationally on October 26 & 27, 2013.
Having seen the previous Met production of Eugene Onegin with the great Renee Fleming, I was interested to encounter this new production, opening the current Met season, with the current Met star, the Russian soprano, Anna Netrebko. I was not disappointed.
Netrebko has a little more steel in her voice, but it is still beautiful and so relaxed. She has great presence on stage and moved easily from the naivety of the young girl to the confidence of the grown woman. She worked well with the mezzo Oksana Volkova as her younger sister.
