About

To follow and accompany Anna Netrebko’s latest and highly anticipated Verismo release, DG presents Manon Lescaut – live from Salzburg!
 
This outstanding concert performance of Manon Lescaut with Anna Netrebko and Yusif Eyvazov was the absolute highlight of the 2016 Salzburg Festival – a moment of operatic glory, captured live for this unique release.
 
Anna excelled herself and fascinated the audience with the perfection of her exceptional voice, her unrivalled interpretation and her devotion to this very part – she is the Manon Lescaut of our time.
 
While Verismo already features the aria ‘In quelle trine morbide’ and the fourth act of Manon Lescaut in a breathtaking studio-version, documenting her great passion to this work, the complete recording of Manon Lescaut will be a great addition to Anna’s fans and opera lovers alike.
 
It has also been a matter of personal importance and dedication for Anna to document this work in its entirety.
Not only is it her favourite Puccini opera, but this role also marks a very special moment in her life, as she met her now husband Yusif Eyvazov, when she debuted as Manon Lescaut in Rome in 2014 in Riccardo Muti’s production, who with his great knowledge and instinct for voices, had casted Yusif as De Grieux.

Yusif, who made his Salzburg debut with this recorded concert, describes the opera as “life-changing”.
