  1. Hi Carlos,

    The program in Copenhagen is up on their website.

    Anna will sing in La Boheme there starting from December 16.

    The opera house in Copenhagen is the best I've ever seen so far.

  2. Thanks! Anna sings 2 performances, on 16 and 19 December. I wrote a post several weeks ago. Thanks for the links.
