Operatic comedy at its most appealing opens the 2009/10 Season. Filled with light-hearted charm and bursting with feel-good laughs, The Elixir of Love features engaging characters and such captivating Italian melodies as the poignant "Una furtiva lagrima" ("A furtive tear"). Rolando Villazón stars as the lovesick Nemorino in search of a magic potion to capture the heart of Adina, performed by Nino Machaidze in her U.S. debut. Nathan Gunn takes the part of Belcore in his role debut, and James Conlon conducts.

I'm curious about this production, especially how Nino will well how say this in english ?! How she will "interpret" the role of Adina. I don't like her interpretation of Juliette in Salzburg very much, but that's only my personal opinion, so let's see !
(I know that I actually don't have any rights on the pictures, but please don't post them anywhere ! I really needed a long time to create them and they are made with all my love for them both, so please respect this. You can of course save them for your personal gallery if you want. Thanks)

Anna Netrebko & Rolando Villazón - Welcome back on stage "Traumpaar"
Anna and Rolando are my absolutely favorite couple in opera ! There's such a special chemistry between them. I decided to make a blog devoted to Anna AND Rolando and not even one about Anna OR Rolando. I hope you will like my blog. Constructional animadversion is desired and I am thankful for all suggestions !
