A True Diva Takes the Stage

Anna Netrebko, Russian star of the Metropolitan Opera, wrapped up Friday's Lincoln Center events with a stirring aria. Toward the end of her performance, she drew out a stunning B-flat (according to her manager) that caught everyone's breath. Upon leaving the stage, she admitted to showing off, saying it was because she was moved to see so many young girls in the audience.
