I appreciated today's conventional staging; all round, a charming production. Netrebko was as bouncy as ever, and her singing sounded flawless to me. Nemerino is an entertaining change from "perfect" heroes, although you have to wonder why Adina would fall for such a dim bulb in the first place. Oh well, everyone was happy at the end.

Kay, what makes you think Rigoletto is being sung in English? What did I miss?
