Anna Netrebko & Yusif EyvazovOpera gala

Anna Netrebko – soprano
Yusif Eyvazov – tenor
PKF – Prague Philharmonia
Michelangelo Mazza – conductor

That's right, the most famous opera couple will visit Prague in December 2021! They will not be together in Prague for the first time. Anna Netrebko came to support her husband in his personal debut in the title role of Giordano's opera Andrea Chénier at the Prague National Theatre on January 30, 2017, and Yusif accompanied Anna to Prague in the summer of 2015.

Anna Netrebko has accepted Nachtigall Artists invite already three times. She made her Prague debut on November 23, 2012 as part of her European tour with P. I. Tchaikovsky’s Iolanta. The second time she appeared on July 10, 2015, along with other famous opera singers, Ekaterina Gubanova, Aleksandr Antonenko and Ildar Abdrazakov. For the third time, she performed at a solo recital with pianist Malcolm Martineau on November 15, 2018.

The December concert of the star couple Netrebko – Eyvazov in famous opera arias and duets promises yet another unforgettable experience. 

There is no need to introduce them: Anna Netrebko, a soprano of Russian origin, has been a phenomenon of the opera world for many years. In February this year, she won the Polar Music 2020 Award, which is considered the Nobel Prize for music.

The Azerbaijani tenor Yusif Eyvazov is not only her life partner, but also her almost indispensable stage partner. Their calendar is full, their performances and concerts are hopelessly sold out.

Anna Netrebko and Yusif Eyvazov appear by arrangement with CSAM.
Anna Netrebko and Yusif Eyvazov record exclusively for Deutsche Grammophon.
