Three of the biggest names in opera come together for a once in a lifetime performance. Opera superstar Anna Netrebko returns to Berlin’s stunning Waldbuhne, one of the world’s most impressive open stages. Against this amazing backdrop, she is joined by her husband, baritone Erwin Schrott and star tenor Jonas Kaufman in a program that includes famous duets from Bernstein’s West Side Story, Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess and Puccini’s Manon Lescaut as well as popular Tango duets and arias from Mozart (Leporello’s aria from Don Giovanni) and excerpts from Gounod’s Faust.
Ms. Netrebko has gone on to appear with nearly all of the world’s great opera companies, including the Metropolitan Opera, the San Francisco Opera, London’s Royal Opera House Covent Garden, the Vienna State Opera, the Paris Opera, the Zurich Opera, the Berlin State Opera, and Munich’s Bavarian State Opera. She also appears regularly in concerts and recitals throughout the world, both in revered concert halls such as London’s Royal Albert Hall and New York’s Carnegie Hall, and in arenas in front of tens of thousands of people.
2007 Anna Netrebko became the first opera singer ever to be named to the TIME 100 list – Time magazine’s list of the most influential people in the world.
At 42, Jonas Kaufmann, the German tenor is one of the busiest and most celebrated singers in opera. His career has developed with extraordinary speed. The swiftness of his rise to prominence speaks both to his great talent and bankability.
Uruguayan bass-baritone Erwin Schrott has praise from both audiences and critics for his powerful and versatile singing as well as his captivating performances especially in roles by Mozart.
He made his professional debut in Montevideo at the age of 22. His breakthrough came in 1998 when he won both the jury and audience prizes at the 1998 Operalia, competition run by Plácido Domingo. He has gone on to play major roles in major opera houses in both Europe and the US.
