Cher Public

She’s just a lady with a song

Note to naysayers: there is nothing wrong with this singing!

  • QuantoPainyFakor

    Che bella voce. Maybe somebody gave her an Olivero recording (think “Egli vede ch’io piango”).

    • La Cieca

      Maybe you can find another hobby besides necrophilia.

      • Anton VonWebern

        Le voci a’miei tempi era un altra cosa

        • Camille

          Le voci erano, ecc. ecc. ad nauseam.

    It’s showy but who fucking cares…those Ab’s are gorgeous and perfectly floated. I love her way with a crowd. There is such joy in watching someone do something they were just made to do.

    I was there. Anna was being particularly generous because it was an encore and the audience erupted in rapturous applause after she sang the first 4 words.

    • Camille

      That explains it — context is everything! Thanks.

      Encores are for frolicking.

  • DonCarloFanatic

    Did it sell out after all? I was surprised that the orchestra still had about twenty seats the day before.

    This picture reminds me of Marylin Monroe in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes: “I love to find new places to wear diamonds”.

    (Plus my all time favourite: “I am not marrying him for his money, I am marrying him for your money”)

    You know how our Anna loves to show off during the encores. Check out the Berlin Gala with Domingo and Villazon. She walks AWAY from the microphone during Musetta’s Waltz in the outdoor venue just to prove she doesn’t need it and the crowd goes wild.

    Here’s a clip of the whole “O mio babbino caro” from the LA concert,

    perhaps she’ll bring this out today: In questa reggia, 2016
