The next screenings of “Manon Lescaut” will be on April 27 and 30. According to the singer’s representative, all tickets are sold out.
“Other solo concerts are planned in Paris, La Scala, Madrid, Tel Aviv and Verona,” added Berin.
Netrebko performs the main part – Manon Lescaut. Diva replaced Maria Agresta. The reason for the relocation is that the Italian singer fell ill, a message about it seen April 14 on the theater site.
Anna’s husband Yusif Eyvazov is also involved in the production. His character is Manon’s lover, Chevalier de Grieux.
Both Eyvazov and Netrebko know these roles well – they have already performed them. For example, in 2016, the debut of the opera diva at the Bolshoi Theater took place at Manon Lescaut. The production was directed by Adolf Shapiro.

In early March, the Metropolitan Opera announced that Netrebko would not participate in upcoming productions, as Netrebko did not comply with the requirement to withdraw public support for Russian President Vladimir Putin during the events in Ukraine. For the same reason, the Bavarian State Opera broke off relations with him.

At the end of March, Netrebko published a post in which he stated that he did not belong to political parties and did not support any Russian leader. He then said that he would return to the stage at the end of May.
