Anna Netrebko

The reigning prima donna of the 21st century, Anna Netrebko has redefined what it means to be an opera star. From singing at the opening ceremony of the Sochi Winter Olympics to becoming the first classical artist named to TIME magazine’s list of the world’s 100 most influential people, she serves as opera’s leading global ambassador. Widely recognised as one of today’s most compelling, committed performing artists in any genre, she is perhaps the most celebrated soprano in the world.

In live performance and on award-winning recordings, Anna’s portrayals of opera’s most iconic heroines have already made an indelible mark on the canon. More recently, as she ventures into bolder, more dramatic repertoire, her place in the annals of operatic history has only been further confirmed. In addition to regularly headlining productions with the world’s leading opera companies, Anna has appeared extensively in concerts and recitals across five continents. Her performances in celebration of the World Cup openings in 2006 at Berlin’s Waldbühne amphitheatre and in 2018 in Moscow’s Red Square were both internationally televised events. An exclusive Deutsche Grammophon recording artist since 2003, Anna’s extensive discography comprises complete operas, concert repertoire, numerous bestselling solo albums, and a recording of love duets with her husband, Azerbaijani tenor Yusif Eyvazov.

Anna was named a 2020 Polar Music Prize laureate alongside American songwriter Diane Warren. Her other honours include being chosen as the 2018 Metropolitan Opera Guild Luncheon honoree, and winning the 2017 International Opera Award for “Best Female Singer”; the 2016 Opera News Award; Musical America’s 2008 “Musician of the Year”; three Grammy Award nominations; Germany’s prestigious Bambi Award; the UK’s Classical BRIT Awards for “Singer of the Year” and “Female Artist of the Year”; the Russian State Prize and designation “People’s Artist of Russia”; and Austria’s “Kammersängerin”. She is a global ambassador for Chopard jewellery.

Born in 1971 in Krasnodar, Russia, Anna studied vocal performance at the St Petersburg Conservatory. A mother and passionate advocate for children’s causes, she shares her infectious joie de vivre –along with her love of family, fashion, and food– on social media, inspiring people to live their most colourful lives and to celebrate what makes them unique.
