Today’s reigning prima donna routinely headlines major productions at leading opera houses across the globe. She was the first classical musician to be included in Time magazine’s “Time 100,” a list of the world’s most influential people.
Since her debut as Donna Anna in Mozart’s "Don Giovanni" at the Salzburg Festival in 2002, Russian-born soprano Anna Netrebko is celebrated “Primadonna assoluta” by experts and her audience. She counts as the most important soprano soloist and performs regularly at the world’s leading opera houses such as the Metropolitan Opera, the Royal Opera House London, the Staatsoper Vienna and the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow. Anna Netrebko’s repertoire includes performances as Mimi in Puccini’s “La Bohéme”, Violetta in Verdi’s “La Traviata”, Tatiana in Tschaikovsky’s “Eugen Onegin” and many more.
Beside her regular performances in leading opera houses, Anna Netrebko performs on various other stages and open-air festivals like New York’s Carnegie Hall, Waldbühne Berlin and the Red Square in Moscow next to famous colleagues such as Placido Domingo, Dmitri Hvorostovsky and Daniel Barenboim. She counts as a constant performer at the Salzburg Festival as well as at the legendary “Night of the Proms” in London.
She has been awarded with several prizes, like the “Deutscher Medienpreis”, the ECHO-Klassik-Prize, the British Classical Award, the “Casta Diva”-Prize and many more. Furthermore, Netrebko was brand ambassador for the luxurious jeweler Chopard and for the well-known cosmetic manufacturer Schwarzkopf.
