Conductor Mikhail Tatarnikov
Soprano Anna Netrebko
Tenor Yusif Eyvazov
Baritone Elchin Azizov
The Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra announces the debut and sole New Zealand performance of Anna Netrebko and Yusif Eyvazov.
The superstar couple of the international opera world will perform An Evening of Opera Highlights with the orchestra and guest star Elchin Azizov.
Netrebko has redefined what it means to be an opera star. Today’s reigning prima donna regularly headlines major productions at leading opera houses across the world and was the first classical musician to be chosen as one of Time Magazine’s “Time 100” list of the world’s most influential people. Earlier this year, she was named the 2017 Best Female Singer at the International Opera Awards in London.
Leading Netrebko, Eyvazov, Azizov and the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra is renowned conductor Mikhail Tatarnikov.
The programme will include classics from opera masterpieces by Verdi, Puccini, Giordano and many others, including arias and duets from Il trovatore, Turandot and Andrea Chénier.
The concert is presented by Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra in association with United Promoters AG and Idili Live Ltd.
