Yesterday it was the last performance of the Royal Opera Tour to Japan. The tour ended with Verdi's "La Traviata" in Tokyo, starring Anna Netrebko as Violetta Valery, James Valenti as Alfredo Germont and Simon Keenlyside as Giorgio Germont. Maestro Antonio Pappano conducted the Chorus and Orchestra of the Royal Opera House.
Talking about this last performance, James Valenti wrote in his Facebook page:
"We had a truly transcendental performance last night. La Netrebko is a force of nature! I feel so lucky to have shared the stage with such esteemed colleagues. The public went crazy! A wonderful way to end our tour".
