Anna Netrebko once again triumphed at the 2006 Salzburg Festival with her winning portrayal of Susanna in Claus Guth’s new production of Le nozze di Figaro, the highlights of which can be heard on this spectacular CD. Led by conductor Nikolaus Harnoncourt with the Vienna Philharmonic, this production of Figaro garnered critical acclaim: “Guth and Harnoncourt have opened up a new perspective on an opera that is normally staged as a lightweight, turbulent farce,” wrote the Zeit Online, while Die Welt described Harnoncourt as “a sorcerer able to conjure up magical sounds.” Bloomberg echoed the positive accolades: “This Marriage of Figaro should go down in history as departing director Peter Ruzicka’s greatest Salzburg achievement...four hours of perfection.” Anna Netrebko’s performance also received rave reviews: “The Russian pearl with the servant’s apron is part of the whole, flying along as if weightless, as light as a wisp of smoke, wholly individual,” reported Die Welt. “As a character she is pure delight, her vocal style simply bowls you over.”
