"Song of the moon" in both Vancouver and Toronto concerts

This is the complete program for the Vancouver concert on April 3, as publisend on VSO's official website. As far as I know it's the first time she sings it (correct me if I'm wrong). I couldn't be happier! From Song of the Moon to Tatiana it's a small step :). And by special request Onegin should be Hvorostovsky.
Going back to the program, those attending the concert will have the privilege of listening among others to Caro mio ben, Vive amour qui reve and L'altra note in fondo al mare, rarely present in concerts. What sould you have as encore? Let's say... Muzica? Any requests?

Gluck - Orfeo et Euridice: Dance of the Furies

  1. Indeed, the programme looks a bit different from what she's been singing in the past few years,so it's a good change. And 'Song to the Moon!" I can only hope that one way or another someone will post a recording. Tatyana might be a slightly bigger step away if we think about what Angela said in an interview about taking up this role: she would want to learn the language first (who knows, maybe she intends to or has been taking Russian lessons? ;-) Wishful thinking...
    And I subscribe to your request, Onegin should be, indeed, Hvorostovsky.

  2. Guess Angela got over her illness from the Met-LOL.

  3. Sognare-special request,composer Roberto A.Chris

  4. Maybe La Corte del Faraon(Zarzuela)Ay,Ba-another special request.
