Anna Netrebko’s summer plansNews
The Russian soprano – who is banned at the Met, Covent Garden Munich and Berlin – will be singing this summer at the Arena di Verona and the Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires.
She is also going on a German concert tour to Cologne, Hamburg and Frankfurt, winding up in Vienna and Malmö, Sweden.
‘The public has spoken,’ said La Scala boss Dominique Meyer after last week’s triumph in Milan.
Are we then to understand that the public approves of Russia’s wanton destruction of Ukraine, as ordered by President Putin whom Ms Netrebko will not criticise?
Or that Mr Meyer and his colleagues just don’t care.
