Concert in two parts, with Hungarian, English, and German subtitles

During her illustrious career spanning almost three decades, Anna Netrebko has become indisputably a prominent performer of the first decades of the 21st century. Her rich repertoire includes almost all the iconic female characters of opera literature, whom she portrays with great success on all major opera stages around the world. Although she has worked with OPERA on numerous occasions, she will now take the stage of the Ybl Palace on Andrássy Avenue for the first time, where she will perform a romantic evening of songs and arias with pianist Pavel Nebolsin, and the participation of mezzo-soprano Elena Maximova and violinist Kurt Mitterfellner.
