Norman Lebrecht on shifting sound worlds
In a hazardous balcony scene, the Russian diva comes out this morning singing, ‘my tiny toes are frozen’.
Feel free to add your own captions.
I wish I had her indoor pool!
“The Fleming woman has been getting a lot of positive press lately, so I thought I’d stand on my balcony in my bathing suit to show what really matters.”
… a little personality. (Keep it lighthearted. meow!)
It’s funny & Russian– “Russian health & fitness.” (Just throw in some Vodka and Boris Yeltsin would be proud.)
I think that she’s losing it.
Open the door, Hal!
Ouff! Pour Mimi, no wonder she never got well….
Announcement to Met audience, just before curtain………”Ms Netrebko regrets she is indisposed……her part will be taken by……….”
I doubt Mr. Gelb is impressed by these shenanigans. He probably reads Slipped Disc too……..
Fire and ice baby!
AAAHH. MY FINGER IS TRAPPED IN THE DOOR!
Oh, thought she was “ill” when she cancelled a few days ago when Elisir opened… is she trying to get sick for real this time?
OT: I suppose you heard about Vanessa-Mae’s success in qualifying for Sochi? http://www.bbc.com/sport/0/winter-olympics/25802907
And fastidiously ignored it. Slipped Disc readers deserve a measure of protection from such things.
Thank you! And, I suppose this is why you always keep us posted on Ms. Jenkins?
Just training for Sochi — here I come, Vlad!
Singin’ in the Snow!
La Bellissima may turn blueissima.
