Anna Netrebko in Dresden: Giuseppe Verdi's selflessly serving Diva

If Opera should be elitist, what is an evening at the Opera with Anna Netrebko would be then in front of three hundred guests? The much-touted "new normal"? The Russian soprano made her debut as Elisabetta in Giuseppe Verdi's "Don Carlo", and only a hand-picked audience was allowed to attend this star hour. This was due to the distance rules, which are now also in Dresden's Semper Opera house.

Which meant only five available rows in the parquet and then about a hundred and fifty in the whole room distributed double seats. In addition to the eight formidable instrumentalists of the Staatskapelle seven members of the state Opera chorus, and seven soloists themselves. Really close to just Anna Netrebko and her husband, the Tenor Yusif Eyvazov, as Elisabetta, Queen of Spain, and he as Don Carlo, the Infante in love with the uprisings at the end. could So, ironically, the Pair to be torn apart in the Opera.
