The wonderful Violetta must have been Venera Gimadieva! She's my soprano to watch (heard her in Santa Fe a year ago)
What did you think of Marnie's music and S&D HD?
Based on the broadcast, I got curious to see Marnie HD, but after reviews came out and friends saw it, I may just wait until it gets to PBS...
S&D in house was just like @emason described it, though by all accounts the final performance ended up the best of the run, vocally (though far from ideal). I enjoyed the orchestral playing the most: tight, precise conducting.
Loved Tucker Gala concert. It's available on medici.tv and on Tucker foundation Facebook page for replay. Angela Meade blew the roof off onc again, this time with an aria from Verdi's I Lombardi. (I believe the Met is reviving it next season with her)
