Anna Netrebko Does Double Duty

As previously mentioned, soprano Anna Netrebko replaced a snowed-in Renée Fleming for the first schedule performance yesterday of the Dresden Staatskapelle's Silvesterkonzert conducted by Christian Thielemann. She was joined by Erwin Schrott.

The program featured the aria "Heia, in den Bergen" from Die Csárdásfürstin by Emmerich Kálmán (Netrebko) and "Rojo Tango" by Pablo Ziegler (Schrott). The two sang the duet "Lippen schweigen" from Die lustige Witwe.

The couple appeared this evening as the "surprise" guests of Die Fledermaus at the Wiener Staatsoper during Prince Orlofsky's party. They reprised the Die lustige Witwe duet and added "Bess, you is my woman now" from George Gershwin's Porgy and Bess.
