First AG autograph I've ever got

My treasure box contains the opera&concert tickets from all the performances I have attended for the past seven years. And also many programs, most of them signed by the artists.  To my great joy, I found this one. It dates back to October 2008, it was Faust at the Vienna State Opera. My first eye to eye meeting with Angela. Needless to say I couldn't say a word. Hope at least I smiled…I don't remember. It was a thunder strike. You all know the feeling :)

So here it is. The very first autograph Angela signed for me. My preeeeciouuuussssss! 

Have a sunny Saturday!

Program for the concert in Regensburg on July 27

Some might say it's post event info. It is, but as it wasn't made public before and many asked me if I knew what Angela sung, so here it is. Many thanks to Martine! 
I also asked her how Tu che di del sei cinta was, as I've never listen to it live. Liu was fantastic. Puccini wrote Liu for her, said Martine. I secretly hope to see it included in future programs.

There were five encores, All the things you are, Guten Abend, Gut' Nacht and……….. ?
