Anna Netrebko charms Prague audience


The world-famous opera diva Anna Netrebko charmed Prague opera lovers on Friday night with a concert performance of Tchaikovsky’s lyrical opera Jolanta. The Smetana Hall of Prague’s Obecni dum was packed for the event and Ms. Netrebko got a ten-minute standing ovation for her first ever performance in the Czech Republic. The concert was billed as one of the highlights of this year’s music scene and was hopelessly sold out months in advance.
