Anna Netrebko: So happy to be back at La ScalaNews
The soprano has posted this message:
‘Every time I can sing at Teatro alla Scala I feel like coming home. I’ve been to so many shows and had the honor of starring in so many premieres in this legendary theater that holds a special place in my heart. After the disappointment of having to give up Adriana Lecouvreur performances earlier in the year, I’m particularly happy to be holding my first piano recital at Scala. I look forward to sharing a lot of wonderful music with Milan fans on Friday, May 27.’
The Ukrainian Ambassador is expected to submit a protest. The Mayor of Milan (who banned Gergiev) may also take a view.
There is a horrible moral ambiguity about this transaction. Nobody emerges with clean hands or conscience.
