Soprano Anna Netrebko has been hired by the Monte Carlo Opera to sing this month next the Metropolitan Opera’s final decision to drop her for failing to repudiate Russia President Vladimir Putin.
The Monte Carlo Opera claimed Thursday that Netrebko will sing the title purpose in Puccini’s “Manon Lescaut” in performances on April 22, 24, 27 and 30. The 50-12 months-aged Russian replaces an originally introduced Maria Agresta.
Tenor Yusif Eyvazov, Netrebko’s spouse, is scheduled to sing Des Grieux.
Netrebko was to have sung 5 performances in a revival of Puccini’s “Turandot” at the Achieved in New York from April 30 to May perhaps 14. She was replaced by Ukrainian soprano Liudmyla Monastyrska for Turandot and by Italian soprano Eleonora Buratto for a revival of Verdi’s “Don Carlo” at the Achieved from Nov. 3-19.
Netrebko issued a assertion in early March that she was “opposed to this senseless war of aggression and I am calling on Russia to stop this war suitable now.” She did not directly mention Putin.
Netrebko, who is from Krasnodar, obtained the People’s Artist of Russia honor from Putin in 2008. She was photographed in 2014 keeping a Novorussian flag following offering a 1 million ruble donation (then $18,500) to the opera hose in Donetsk, a Ukrainian city controlled by pro-Russia separatists.
She mentioned in late March she satisfied Putin “only a handful of periods in my overall daily life, most notably on the situation of obtaining awards in recognition of my art or at the Olympics opening ceremony.”
“I am not a member of any political celebration nor am I allied with any chief of Russia,” Netrebko explained in late March. “I acknowledge and regret that previous actions or statements of mine could have been misinterpreted.”
