Profile

This past spring, Anna Netrebko— known for her keen sense of drama, high glamour, and velvet voice—marked a career triumph in Vienna as the eventually beheaded queen in Donizetti’s Anna Bolena. The Met soon came calling with an offer to do all three of the composer’s Tudor operas. “Intuition told me, sing just one which you like,” Netrebko says. “And I chose Bolena.” Then she read the score and saw the part’s low-reaching twooctave range, somewhat out of her comfort zone. “I thought, Why the hell did I agree to do this? It was intuition, nothing else. And usually I’m right.” Decide for yourself at the Met (starting September 27).
