For the first time in Australia, the world's greatest soprano and the celebrated tenor, Anna Netrebko and Yusif Eyvazov.
The superstar couple of the opera circuit will perform An Evening of Opera Highlights at Melbourne’s Hamer Hall on Wednesday 18 October and Sydney Opera House on Tuesday 24 October.
Anna Netrebko has redefined what it means to be an opera star. With her distinctively beautiful voice, rich tones, abundant charisma, and arresting stage presence, she makes an indelible impression with each of the roles she portrays. An iconic figure both on and off the stage, the Russian soprano enjoys a level of superstardom that extends far beyond the classical realm.
“A soprano with star power in the best sense, a charismatic expressivity that pervades every element of her performance.”
- New York Times
Joining Netrebko on stage will be celebrated tenor Yusif Eyvazov. In the 2015/16 season, he made a series of important debuts with world-renowned companies including New York’s Metropolitan Opera and the Wiener Staatsoper.
Performing with Netrebko and Eyvazov will be the Opera Australia Orchestra conducted by the renowned Mikhail Tatarnikov.
“Eyvazov is an exciting tenor whose sound is metallic, stentorian and markedly Italianate ... there is nothing else quite like it.”

The evening will include classics from opera masterpieces by Verdi, Puccini, Giordano and many others, including arias and duets from Il trovatore, Turandot and Andrea Chénier.
