Anna Netrebko- Unit 4

Anna Netrebko is the latest great soprano to come out of Russia. This 39 year old singer was discovered by the Russian conductor Valery Giergiev whilst she was cleaning the floors of the Saint Petersburg's Mariinsky Theatre at the age of 22. She's gone on to be one of the leading ladies of opera for her generation. Possessing a powerful voice with sensuous control. Not to mention she's absolutely gorgeous, so she's one of my favorites :).

Here she is singing the aria "Song to the Moon" from Rusalka by Czech composer Antonin Dvorak.
