It was a big week in the opera world, especially in Vienna where the Opernball took place.

Jonas Kaufmann fans were delighted to see the tenor perform, while he got a chance to hang out with a number of old friends, including Anna Netrebko. Here is a pic of the two posing for cameras alongside Netrebko’s husband Yusif Eyvazov.
