It was the evening Angela replaced Anna Netrebko who was ill. As far as I read, it was the first time Angela and Piotr Beczala performend together on the stage of the Metropolitan Opera New York. But they sung together in La Boheme in San Francisco, in 2008.
.
There was another great Romanian singer in this production, George Petean, as Marcello.
