The soprano has messaged, seemingly from Miami:

  • Michael McGrath says:

    I repeat: Why does she assume we care?!

    • Tiredofitall says:

      Like her or not, she remains one of the most bankable opera stars on the planet. Her innumerable fans DO care and as a celebrity, she is communicating with them.

      In your case, I suggest you simply ignore her Instagram posts and take that time to get your panties out of their bunch.

      • Peter B says:

        Ah just give me a break…. She is probably the most overrated opera “star” on the planet and won’t be remembered for any particular role. Her voice is artificially thickened since approx 10 years because she cannot sing.
        If people pay money to listen to her it does not mean she is that great, it just shows how amateurish the new opera audiences are!

        • Tiredofitall says:

          It’s easiest if you just firmly grasp your clothing below the waist in back and pull down on your pants and the offending underwear with one sturdy yank. You will experience immediate relief from those annoying bunches.

      • Sue Sonata Form says:

        I never understood the adulation for this soprano. Not at all.

        • Tiredofitall says:

          You could substitute the names of many singers (here). How many people never got Callas, or have simply cancelled Domingo. To each his own…it’s all subjective and not worth playing the game of mine’s better than yours.

        • Nick says:

          Too bad! Open your ears!

      • Myrna Wittlin says:

        hI, I’m an opera lover. My name is Myrna Wittlin and I’m in Forest Hills, Queens, New York. I absolutely love her & listen to her on line. Very unfortunately, I recently broke my right foot and so can’t get to the family circle of the Metropolitan Opera in New York City her and other great voices in person. I can’t afford the other levels of the opera house.

    • Jake says:

      Maybe she gives people the benefit of the doubt.
      Maybe you should try that sometime.

  • Michael Duffy says:

    Best of luck Anna, I hope you are fully recovered soon

  • Maria says:

    Why do we have to have a blow by blow account of a bad shoulder operation or two??

  • Thomas says:

    Since she’s such a huge fan of Vladimir Putin, she might consider brain surgery as well. 😉
