    After listening to this disappointing concert with Anna and her husband Yusif, I can't help but think that the real star here is Anna, and Yusif, not of the same order of magnitude, is only featured on the same stage with her for extra-artistic reasons. She wasn't particularly good here either (seemed fatigued, and dressing and hairdo choices weren't flattering - a bit better in the last third with the simpler grey gown), but still had moments of brilliance, while he was just generic at best, and often rather bad.

    Apparently, love is not only blind, but deaf as well.

    (And I like those "experts" from Italian opera in the video title!)

    Maybe Yusif is improving. He gets praise (as does Anna) in this review of Andrea Chénier. https://bachtrack.com/review-andrea-...-december-2017

    I saw them in concert in Auckland doing a good programme, Anna WAS amazing and even the girls noticed. Yusif did a pretty job and was rather sweet and visibly nervous; a very adequate canbelto. But Anna is just in another class from him.

    Just came across this clip with a very youthful Netrebko in operetta:
    "Ah,non credea mirarti si presto estinto, o fiore." --Bellini, La Sonnambula (also written on his tomb).
