“After astonishing debuts as an unknown young singer, Anna Netrebko is now one of the world's favorite opera heroines. Now, for the first time, she's ready to lavish her pure, powerful voice on composers from her homeland, in a program of some of the most beautiful arias and songs in the Russian repertoire. Anna Netrebko's Russian Album is a deeply personal recording, made in the opera house where she first found stardom, St. Petersburg’s Mariinsky Theatre, and conducted by Anna’s mentor and friend who has championed her from the start: Valery Gergiev.
This collection includes NetrebkoAnna in her signature role, Natasha from Prokofiev's WAR AND PEACE - which launched her career at the Metropolitan Opera in 2002. In addition, Anna gives listeners a taste of roles yet to come with Tatiana's letter scene from Tchaikovsky's EUGENE ONEGIN."
