Anna Netrebko's star keeps rising. The Russian soprano hit one out of the park in the title role of Massenet's "Manon" which premiered in a new production tonight in Vienna. According to the A-P review her acting was as good as her singing. And Roberto Alagna didn't do too badly, either, apparently.
