Anna Netrebko spoke about performances in Russia


Opera singer Anna Netrebko spoke about her plans for the future.

The ballet star received scandalous fame after statements against the backdrop of well-known events, when the singer said that she connected her future with Europe and that she would tour there.

This happened after many foreign theaters and concert halls terminated contracts with her. In Russia, the contract with her at the Novosibirsk Opera and Ballet Theater was terminated, Dmitry Rogozin withdrew the invitation to the cosmodrome, where he had previously offered her to perform for the astronauts.

But the Mariinsky Theater did not reject her participation in the annual St. Petersburg festival “White Nights”. There, even against the background of all these scandals, they confirmed – yes, Anna Netrebko will perform in the Northern capital.

Now it became known that the opera diva herself refused to come home.

At the moment I have no plans to sing in Russia. Even at the White Nights festival in St. Petersburg, I don’t think now is the right time. But to be clear, I enjoy performing in my country and I look forward to singing there again – as soon as circumstances permit. I learned music there, started my career and I really appreciate the opportunity to perform for the public in Russia”, Anna told the Austrian edition of Zeit.
