A mysterious lady in the shadows of Castellor! Who might she be?

Can you identify this Leonora?

    My first instinct is Poplavskaya. The problem is that she sounds too healthy for it to be her.

      While the Mavens seem to have satisfactorily settled who it is that’s singing, I’d like ID the headless Leonora as soprano Eilana Lappalainen, flanked by baritone Nmon Ford (Luna) and tenor Gustavo López Manzitti (Manrico)

    Off-topic: the Met future page has just been updated and Luc Bondy will be the director of the new 2012-13 Rigoletto.
    In 2014-15, paired with a NP of Bartok’s Bluebeard castle (with Borodina & Abrazakov), Iolanta will premiere in the Baden-Baden production (no casting announced yet but I think that averyone know who will performed in it).
    Finally, in 2012-13, there will be a revival of Clemenza with Frittoli & Garanca.

    “né timor di me ti prenda…
    Salvarlo io potrò forse.”

    something about the way she sings the words “preda….salvarlo” reminds me so much of leontyne price, my favorite leonora.
