Thanks for your excellent review of the Mariinsky concerts. I have seen Netrebko many times and she always delivered a great show. Her Iolanta was magical and I enjoyed it very much.
I was surprised though to see so many empty seats. Clearly, Kennedy Center has a big management problem if they cannot fill up the Opera House for a single night performance with one of the world's best sopranos. They might take a hard look at their promotion strategy and work on it. It might be difficult to bring back stars of this caliber if you cannot sell the seats.

Saturday night's War and Peace was a very sad time for singing. The Natasha emitted the ugliest soprano sounds I can remember ever hearing. There was some very ugly singing there.
