The one that got away

Anna Caterina Antonacci is not, in fact, coming to the Met. Admittedly her scheduled debut was Donna Elvira and nothing definite after that, but still, she’s an interesting artist who isn’t heard enough in the U.S., and a few Elviras is better than no Antonacci at all. Apparently Antonacci was bumped in favor of Angela Gheorghiu, an artist whose participation in an ensemble opera La Cieca will believe when she sees it. La Antonacci talks about this imbroglio and other more elevating topics in an interview with Rupert Christiansen.
