Anna Netrebko & Dmitri Hvorostovsky – concert movie
Appearing for the first time together on Red Square, Moscow, two of the biggest names in opera today, Anna Netrebko (Soprano) and Dmitri Hvorostovsky (Baritone), performed for one night only in front of audience of 7,500 people. The recorded broadcast of this exciting program will include arias from some of the most recognised operas including Tosca, Eugene Onegin, and Il trovatore. The singers are accompanied by conductor Constantine Orbelian, Russia’s State Academic Symphony Orchestra “Evgeny Svetlanov” and a large chorus.
Director Frank Hof, whose work includes the memorable Anna Netrebko, Plácido Domingo, and Rolando Villazón performance at Berlin’s Waldbühne, was shooting the Red Square performance with 18 cameras in magnificent HD to best capture the stunning backdrop of Red Square, and create an exclusive theatrical mix in 5.1 digital surround sound.
Anna Netrebko is one of the world’s most recognised and highly regarded opera singers who regularly headlines productions at all of the international opera houses including the Metropolitan Opera, London’s Royal Opera House, Milan’s Teatro alla Scala, and the Paris’s Opéra de la Bastille. In 2007, she became the first classical musician to be named to the Time 100 list, the magazine’s list of the most influential people in the world.
Internationally acclaimed Russian baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky appears regularly on the world’s greatest stages, including the Metropolitan Opera, the Royal Opera House, and the Vienna State Opera. He became the first opera singer to give a solo concert with orchestra and chorus on Red Square which was televised in 25 countries worldwide.
