A single-performance of Verdi's "La Traviata" took place at the Mariinsky Theater of St. Petersburg on 28. November 2007. The cast was headed by Anna Netrebko as Violetta and included Dmitry Voropaev as Alfredo Germont and Alexander Gergalov as Giorgio Germont. The Chorus and Orchestra of the Mariinsky Theater were conducted by Valery Gergiev.

  1. I've had the chance to be there and it was a wonderful evening, a dream come true.... Anna has such a wonderful voice, and such skillfull theatrality... she embodied Violetta...

  2. Hi! Thank you very much for your comments. It is great that you got the opportunity to attend this performance. It was the first time you saw Anna performing? She is really very good, both singing and acting on the stage.

  3. yeah, i had been living 5 months in St-Petersbourg, and I had the chance to go three times at the mariinsky theater, it is very much cheaper than in switzerland...

  4. As far as I know, Anna was also there in a performance of Don Giovanni a couple of days after La Traviata. Did you saw this one too? This year Zürich opera season's is pretty good. Did you go to La Bohème or Il Trovatore? Do you plan to attend La Traviata with Kaufmann?

  5. Have a nice weekend in Lugano ;)

  6. I didn't watch Don giovanni, because her performance wasn't announced in the programm, until really late, and it was already booked up. I wish i could listen to Vivica Genaux in genève or to Bartoli in Zurich for the Cenerentola (if I remember right, i'm mixed up with the opera programms), but it is too much for my budget...
