Are “operatic diva” and “popular” oxymoronic terms? Just ask the devoted fans (not all opera buffs either!) about Russian superstar Anna Netrebko, whose voice has been described as “dark gold on velvet.” Her latest CD, Russian Album, is in the top ten on the German pop charts, and her popularity goes well beyond the European shores. Try some of her CDs owned by HCPL, including Violetta: Arias and Duets from Verdi’s La Traviata and Siempre Libera.
