Anna Netrebko

It is rare for an artist to break through the boundaries of classical music stardom and achieve recognition in the wider world, but Anna Netrebko has achieved that and more. In a recording career stretching a mere dozen years she has not only seduced the classical scene with the beauty of her voice, her superb vocal control and supreme musicality, she has also become an interna¬tional icon. More than an operatic diva, Anna Netrebko is an enormously charismatic individual whose vivacious style and dazzling stage presence are as celebrated as her musical artistry.

Anna Netrebko was born in 1971 in Krasnodar, Russia, and studied vocal performance at the St. Petersburg Conservatory. She made her operatic stage debut at the Mariinsky, aged 22, singing Susanna in Le nozze di Figaro. She first gained international recognition with a triumphant Salzburg Festival debut in 2002 as Donna Anna in Mozart’s Don Giovanni, and has gone on to perform with nearly all the world’s great opera companies. She made her debut at New York’s Metropolitan Opera in 2002 and has returned every season since to perform her signature roles, becoming the only soprano to have opened the season in three consecutive years (2011–13).

Earlier highlights of Netrebko’s extensive discography include Grammy-nominated recordings Violetta and Russian Album, bestselling solo albums Sempre Libera, Souvenirs, In the Still of Night, Anna Netrebko: Live at the Metropolitan Opera; and complete opera recordings of La traviata, Le nozze di Figaro, La Bohème and I Capuleti e i Montecchi, among others. Verismo, recorded with the Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia and Sir Antonio Pappano, highlights to perfection the most recent developments in Anna Netrebko’s ever-evolving career, as she explores some of the darker reaches of the soprano repertoire.
