Bayreuth flutters Netrebko’s Elsamain
Having refused to appear in tonight’s new Lohengrin, Anna Netrebko will sing two performances next summer – according to Katharina Wagner.
Anna knows the role, having sung it with Beczala and Thielemann at Dresden (below).
Whether she will do it again is another matter.
Bayreuth’s bookies are not taking bets.
Angela Merkel is expected tonight. She has seen a few Elsas in her time.
