An unforgettable performance of Anna Netrebko at the MET now on DVD/BR!
Outstanding press acclaim for her performance:
New York Observer stated: ".. a superstar cast ... the most potent: Anna Netrebko's ferociously exciting star turn as Lady Macbeth ... a "demented" performance, one so exciting it propels both artist and audience figuratively to the brink of madness."
While the New York Times writes: "Lady Macbeth is causing a sensation at the Metropolitan Opera ... This was Ms. Netrebko's night"
This MET performance featured not only an astonishing Anna Netrebko, but also a superstar-cast with artists like Željko Luèiæ, René Pape, Joseph Calleja and a brilliantly performing MET Orchestra and Chorus conducted by Fabio Luisi.
"[Noble's] direction is frequently gripping, aided by two magnificent central performances. Anna Netrebko's darker soprano of recent years is not perfectly suited to Verdi's heavier roles...it was a performance matched by Željko Luèiæ's Macbeth. His velvety timbre and stylish phrasing mark him out as one of the few Verdi baritones today worthy of the description...Luisi revels inthe score's dark tinta." (Gramophone)
