That’s what Peter Gelb told a luncheon this week.


That little dance should be entertaining.


  • Mario Lutz says:

    Ich fordre den Kopf des PEEETER GELB!
    I want the head of Peeeter Geeeelb!

  • YS says:

    Without any command and interest in Strauss and german language? Her voice is too dark and heavy for Strauss silvery legato lines in between

  • carl says:

    oy va voy!!!

  • funny wobbler says:

    oh grief!
    She will WOBBLE her way through one of those demanding roles mastered by the great Luba Velich, and we will all feel queasy.

    Why does she bother? Oh and for the mind numbing boredom of watching her on Russian TV.
    Someone who really has nothing to say.
    Pity she’s not blonde, at least we could understand her then being just another “dumb blonde”!

  • Pedro says:

    It has been announced several months ago as a partnership between the MET and the Bolschoi.

  • Skidegodt says:

    Maybe Tchaikovsky’s “Iolanta” should be put on her ‘to do’ list along with Andrea Boccelli as Count Vaudémont, the Burgundian knight – another case of the blind leading the blind ………

  • Charles says:

    Will she get her husband to do he dance? I know it tends to be a BOGOF deal with this duo.

  • Cantantelirico says:

    Don’t do it Anna!!! Don’t let him use you like that!!
