BWW Review: The Audience Cheers Tenor Camarena in Delightful DON PASQUALE at the MetBWW Review: The Audience Cheers Tenor Camarena in Delightful DON PASQUALE at the Met
by Richard Sasanow - Mar 23, 2016

Point/counterpoint: As if to set off its trio of Elizabethan tragedies by Donizetti, the Met is presenting two of the master's comedies. First up: DON PASQUALE, and it was a pip. (The other is L'ELISIR D'AMORE.) Too bad the Met underestimated its appeal, because it had a truncated run of only five performances. Judging by the audience reception, they could have done more--certainly if tenor Javier Camarena was at bat. (more...)

BWW Review: Diva Netrebko Casts Spell at Metropolitan Opera RecitalBWW Review: Diva Netrebko Casts Spell at Metropolitan Opera Recital
by Richard Sasanow - Mar 3, 2016

Anna Netrebko came out on stage in a shimmering white and silver gown with matching headband, looking like an Art Deco goddess in a poster by Alfonso Mucha. It's a look that suited her--not only because the Russian soprano has Bellini's NORMA on her Met schedule in the not-too-distant future, but because she's about as close to a goddess as the Met can conjure up these days (with maybe one or two competitors). And the audience ate it up. (more...)
