I listened to the live stream last night. Netrebko sounded blunt and unmusical in "Io son l'umile," but she warmed up as the evening went along. Still, I find the current overall state of her voice worrisome.

Rachvelishvili, on the other hand, sounded phenomenal from note one.

Beczala sounded good over the air, but I could see how he might seem overparted in the house. What sounds right with a microphone at your feet doesn't always translate into the auditorium. I haven't heard him live since he switched over to heavier repertoire.

Noseda is a very fine (and versatile) conductor. It was great to hear him leading the Met again. I have some friends who reject the idea of Adriana as merely a star vehicle and regard it as a neglected masterpiece. I'm not sure I would go that far, but on balance with much of the season so far, it definitely seemed like a success.
