January 1970

The Russian soprano Anna Yuryevena Netrebko (to give her her full name) has dominated the world’s most prestigious stages for a number of years, ever since she was discovered at St Petersburg’s Mariinsky Theatre by the celebrated Russian maestro Valery Gergiev. She debuted as Susanna in Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro and went on to dazzle audiences in the most important soprano roles such as Mimì in Puccini’s La bohème, Violetta in Verdi’s La traviata, Lady Macbeth, Joan of Arc, Aida, and so on. She has performed in all the most important concert halls around the world. Passionate enthusiasm and hard work have brought her to a vocal maturity that now enables her to take on the major roles in the works of Verdi and Wagner. She also makes frequent forays into the repertoire of the late Romantic period. Some years ago the New York Times described her stage presence as something that is “very rare”. She was also the first classical musician to appear in Time magazine’s list of the hundred most influential people in the world. She is one of the most prominent soloists recording for the German record label Deutsche Grammophon, while thanks to her charisma and her active presence on social media, she has also become one of today’s essential musical “influencers”. The glamorous soprano will be accompanied at this concert by the RTV Slovenia Symphony Orchestra.
