Verismo (Anna Netrebko)

Clive Paget - December 21, 2016
★★★½☆ Netrebko’s verismo is occasionally overcast but with sunny spells.
★★★☆☆ Woody’s witty production gets good cast but dull recording.
★★★★★ A charming Aussie children’s tale brought to life by Marks.
★★★★½ Harrowing tale of Japanese child murder and sacrifice hits its mark.
★★★★★ Emma's perfect cocktail: French champagne and Bellinis are on the star soprano's menu.
★★★★★ Mitchell makes a magical opera painfully and wonderfully human.
★★★★½ McVicar’s ‘oriental’ take makes for a convincing slice of drama.
★★★★½ Harrowing history told by a bold, emerging Aussie voice.
★★★★☆ Superbly sung, brutally realised staging of Verdi’s fatalist drama.
★★★★★ NY City Center Encores dig up more than just nuggets of gold.
