Anna Netrebko & Rolando Villazón - World's greatest opera couple
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 !
