  1. Me gusta la foto, even though parece que she's about to fall out of her shirt.
    Es ok mezclar espanol y ingles, no? :)

  2. Hahaha ;) Yeah, Susan, no problem. You can mix español and english. I think that this picture is less known than others and it is really good.

  3. Otra cosa mas... Aqui en New Jersey y NY the TV listings say that it's on Thursday, April 3 on WNET. They're showing it the 6th also.

  4. I was wondering what they will do with the slight crack Netrebko did at her first aria. Well now I have the answer. There is no crack at the tv broadcast!
