To Sing is to Live

Just like the legendary performers who have graced its stage since 1880, the best productions of the Metropolitan Opera can be counted on to be extraordinary.
This year’s celebrated gala opening night for the 2011-12 Season did not disappoint: the achingly beautiful Anna Bolena, by Italian maestro Gaetano Donizetti, was selected for the honor of this season’s premiere at the
world-famous American opera house. A Russian cast dominated the stage: Anna Netrebko, Ildar Abdrazakov, and Ekaterina Gubanova occupied the three title roles.
Broadcast live in HD on opening night, the production’s success, as confirmed by numerous critics as well as opera aficionados worldwide, was immediate. On a side note, this year Russia has also joined the global community of countries which can now enjoy the illustrious series known simply as The Met: Live in HD.
