Another Favorite Clip

All this talk of Anna Netrebko and Angela Gheorghiu got me poking around YouTube. I found this fun little gem of La Netrebko and Elina Garanca singing Mira, o Norma from Bellini's Norma. Below that clip, you'll find a famous clip of the same duet. This time, sung by Horne and Sutherland. Which one suits your fancy? Please click comments below and give your reaction.

Now, you'll remember that La Netrebko is leaving the MET's La Traviata production because she simply cannot do routine. But, what you might not know is that she is still set to be seen in the new production of Les Contes d'Hoffmann as Antonia with Elina Garanca, who was to sing Nicklausse. That was until Angela Gheorghiu came in and rocked the boat. Now, Garanca is leaving the MET's Hoffmann to replace Angela Gheorghiu in the Carmen spot which she is vacating. Stepping in as Nicklausse is recent MET Council Winner Kate Lindsey.

Round, round, round she goes - where she stops? Nobody knows!

Take a few minutes to watch these - and don't forget to comment below. Enjoy!
