Social Media Beat (Week of 2/27/2017): Guess Who Got Hang Out With Dame Judi Dench?

It was a fun week for a lot of major superstars in the opera world.


Let’s start off with Carmen Giannattasio’s amazing week where she was not only given the honor of Knight of the order of the Star of the Italian Republic, but she also got to hang out with none other than legendary actress Dame Judi Dench.

Anna Netrebko is currently in Oman rehearsing a big concert at the Royal Opera House Muscat with her husband Yusif Eyvazov. During her time exploring the country, Netrebko decked out in traditional attire and created her own version of Leila from “The Pearl Fishers.”

Ну вот, как то так😁…so, well, somehow like this…😍
