    I would be happy to agree to disagree. Everyone has varying opinions and we all can be happy by respecting one another’s opinion. Although, we may disagree, I do respect what you have to say.

    Gianni same here. I respect what you have to say.

  • this is a very beautiful interpretation, and bodes very well for her continuing transition into heavier rep.

    I read somewhere in a review that she tried to do a different interpretation so as not to look like a dumb soubrette, but I can’t exactly remember what she was thinking.

    Now here’s a soubrette:

    I’m interested to see the comparisons of Netrebko to Moffo. This has been mentioned before, and one can see a certain physical glamor that they share as well. Though the voices are in no way identical, it’s intriguing to note that nearly all of the French and Italian roles in Netrebko’s repertoire are roles that Moffo also sang onstage and/or recorded (Moffo didn’t do any Russian roles that I know of.) Both did lighter roles like Norina, Adina, Zerlina, and Susanna in addition to heavier Puccini and Verdi standards. As did Freni. (Moffo’s Butterfly recording was issued by RCA as a “lighter cast” alternative to the Leontyne Price version, which they put out at the same time.) As well as French roles like Juliette and Manon. Though Moffo’s unfortunate vocal history does not suggest that Netrebko should necessarily continue to follow her example, one might speculate as to which other Moffo roles might suit her. Thais? Liu? Luisa Miller?
