Netrebko in Don Giovanni

My Classical NotesThe opera “Don Giovanni” by Mozart is one of my great favorites. When you get to enjoy it as sung by Anna Netrebko, one can just imagine the fireworks… Mozart: Don Giovanni, K527 Performed by Erwin Schrott (as Don Giovanni), Anna Netrebko (Donna Anna), Luca Pisaroni (Leporello), Malena Ernman (Donna Elvira), Charles Castronovo (Don Ottavio), Katija Dragojevic (Zerlina), Jonathan Lemalu (Masetto), Mario Luperi (Commendatore), and the Balthasar-Neumann-Orchestra, Balthasar-Neumann-Choir, Thomas Hengelbrock conducting. This is a llive recording of Don Giovanni from the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden, Germany. Opera Today wrote that “Schrott creates Don Giovanni in all his malevolent glory — virile, confident, arrogant. He is bursting with animal sexuality, yet manages to hint at the manic obsession that drives the character. Stunning.” Here for your own enjoyment is a recording of the opera from La Scala Milan, under the direction of Daniel Barenboim. (Recording starts with the Italian National Anthem):

Anna Netrebko wants *you* to design her next album cover

It’s a verismo album and she’s apparently not satisfied with this concept put up by DG and her design teams: (You can see why.) The album is due for release in September but there’s still time to change the artwork. So the diva has put out a public appeal for fresh cover ideas. On a postcard, please. Here’s the brief. Post your design proposals below as Comments and we’ll forward them to the team.
