Anna Netrebko – Day and Night

The phenomenal soprano Anna Netrebko will commence a tour in November 2018 which will bring her also to Prague. After her appearance in the Czech capital, she will perform at the Lyrical Opera of Chicago (Dec 2) and Carnegie Hall New York Hall (Dec 9). In the lieder repertoire of famous Russian composers, her stage partner will be a superb pianist Malcolm Martineau.

The reigning diva of the 21st century (Associated Press), soprano Anna Netrebko redefines what it means to be an opera star. In 2007 she became the first classical musician to be selected as one of the Time 100, Time magazine’s list of the most influential people in the world. Having already made an indelible mark on many of opera’s most iconic heroines – both in performances and on award-winning recordings – Anna continues to reach new heights as she ventures into bolder, more dramatic repertoire.

Thus the 2017/18 season have seen her debuts as Aida at the Salzburg Festival 2017, as Maddalena in Andrea Chénier for her second opening night of La Scala – this time opposite Yusif Eyvazov as the title character – and Tosca at the Metropolitan Opera, all in new productions. At the Vienna State Opera, she sang Leonora to Eyvazov’s Manrico and in July 2018 she will create Adriana Lecouvreur. In the spring she brings her celebrated portrayal of Lady Macbeth to London’s Royal Opera House for the first time. On the concert stage, she and Eyvazov kick off a season-long concert tour at Berlin’s Waldbühne amphitheater in August and later travel to Dubai, Japan, Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Monaco, Moscow, Belarus, and London (Royal Albert Hall in May 2018).

An exclusive recording artist for Deutsche Grammophon, Netrebko boasts an extensive discography that includes solo albums, complete opera recordings, and DVDs. Netrebko’s other honors and awards include Grammy nominations; a 2017 International Opera Award for “Best Female Singer”; the 2016 Opera News Award; Musical America’s 2008 “Musician of the Year”; Germany’s prestigious Bambi Award; the UK’s Classical BRIT Awards for “Singer of the Year” and “Female Artist of the Year”; and eleven German ECHO Klassik awards that include “Singer of the Year.” A dual citizen of Austria, in 2017 she was awarded the country’s “Kammersängerin”. In her native Russia, she was awarded the Russian State Prize (the country’s highest award in the field of arts and literature) in 2005, and in 2008 she was given the title of “People’s Artist of Russia.”

Born in 1971 in Krasnodar, Russia, Anna Netrebko studied vocal performance at the St. Petersburg Conservatory and made her professional debut at the Mariinsky Theatre. A mother and passionate advocate for children’s causes, she supports a number of charitable organizations, including SOS-Kinderdorf International and the Russian Children’s Welfare Society. Since 2006, she has been a global ambassador for Chopard jewelry.

Anna Netrebko made her Prague debut on 23rd November 2012; due to the Nachtigall Artists efforts, Prague was included on her European tour with P. I. Tchaikovsky´s Iolanta. Two years later, she accepted the invitation of the Nachtigall Artists to perform in Prague on 10th July 2015 alongside Ekaterina Gubanova, Aleksandrs Antonenko and Ildar Abdrazakov, and the Czech National Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Marco Armiliato.
