Spielzeit 26.08. - 09.10.


An evening with Anna Netrebko and Massimo Giordano


The miraculous discovery of the young Russian soprano Anna Netrebko, who became the wonder of Salzburg with her Donna Anna and Violetta,means she is now one of the best-known international singing stars.  Indeed, she has become a contemporary female icon, comparable to a pop-star. Her fascinating vocal range enables her to bring a finely nuanced individuality to each of the roles she plays, whether tragically heroic or captivatingly comic. Audiences love her finely rendered legatos and her inner radiance. She is a mistress of tonal adroitness: cooing, glittering, and unmistakeably illuminating her characters from Mozart, Donizetti, Bellini, Gounod, Massenet or Puccini.

Anna Netrebko will be appearing for the first time at the Ruhrtriennale alongside the widely-acclaimed Italian tenor Massimo Giordano, who performs regularly at opera-houses around the world. Together they will perform arias and duets from operas and operettas by composers such as Gaetano Donizetti, Giuseppe Verdi, Charles Gounod and Giacomo Puccini.
