Russian soprano Anna Netrebko has reigned supreme on opera and concert stages across the world, ever since being discovered by conductor Valery Gergiev. Her vocal maturity enables her to create unparalleled interpretations of Verdi and Wagner heroines, as well as in leading roles in works of the later Romantic period. Anna and her stage partner, the Azerbaijani tenor Yusif Eyvazov, who is one of the most sought-after tenors of his generation, have become an operatic star couple par excellence. The charismatic singer is a regular guest at the most prestigious opera houses and festivals around the world, such as the Royal Opera House in London, the Bavarian State Opera in Munich, the Vienna State Opera, La Scala in Milan, the Paris Opera and the Metropolitan Opera in New York. The programme will have an Italian flavour, featuring some of the best known soprano and tenor arias and duets from selected operas. When Giuseppe Verdi started writing operas, the public and professional circles were firmly convinced that the effectiveness of Rossini’s operas could not be exceeded. Yet Verdi’s new approaches in dramatisation and inventive melodic dimension in his musical expression soon showed them that they were wrong. He became the most important opera composer in Italy and in the wider European arena. After Verdi, the time came for Giacomo Puccini, who followed up on his predecessor in influence and distinction. He worked in the verismo style, which is a musical response to the then widespread literary realism. This same style was used in operas by Leoncavallo and Giordano.
The RTV Slovenija Symphony Orchestra will be conducted by Michelangelo Mazza, who has worked closely with outstanding singers for a number of years.
