Anna Bolena recently made its debut at the New York Met – nearly 180 years after it premiered in 1830 in Italy. One of todays most talented female opera singers, Anna Netrebko, did an awesome job with her huge range of tones. She is indeed one of the most talented sopranos of this generation. The opening night at the Metropolitan was referred to as a complete success due to this production.
The story “Anna Bolena” is about the sad final days of one of King Henry VIII’s wives. It is presented almost like it would be fit for today’s reality TV. It comes complete with jealousy, revenge and hatred.
Anna Netrebko is a true pro doing “Anna Bolena.” If you are a fan of the opera, you won’t want to miss this great production at the Metropolitan Opera.
