Anna Netrebko v. Microphone

Guess who wins?? She is an opera singer, after all...

With a tip o' the hat to the Opera Chic, here's Anna Netrebko at a huge big-Ruble-ticket charity concert on Red Square, featuring Mother Russia's crappiest PA system (tho in fairness, it may well have been the pre-concert downpour that caused the crackling).
Take that, microphone!!:

Of course, we shouldn't be too surprised, considering she's Anna "Get your Gun" Netrebko. From her website gallery:
