Opera lovers unite here on SF! Making the pilgrimage to the Met in April for Fidelio and Don Pasquale, the latter with the lovely Anna Netrebko. http://www.universal-music.co.jp/cla...etrebko01a.jpg It will be my first Met opera since its touring days of the early 1980s, when I heard several performances in the Midwest (including Milnes in Boccanegra). Not my favorite two operas, but I'm hoping to add Traviata when I get to NYC. I've seen a video of Netrebko in some minimalist set performing E Strano, which was stunning; not sure if that's what's being staged in NYC. I'm anxious to see how the Met stacks up against Chicago Lyric, which I'm more familiar with. Please share your opera thoughts, on-stage or in-home listening.
