Anna Netrebko

The reigning prima donna of the 21st century, Anna Netrebko has redefined what it means to be an opera star, becoming perhaps the most celebrated soprano in the world. In live performance and on award-winning recordings, her portrayals of opera’s most iconic heroines have already made an indelible mark. Now, as she ventures into bolder, more dramatic repertoire, she continues to reach new heights. From singing at the opening ceremony of the 2014 Winter Olympics to becoming the first classical artist named to TIME magazine’s list of the world’s 100 most influential people, Anna serves as opera’s leading global ambassador and is widely recognized as one of today’s most compelling, committed performing artists in any genre. Offstage, on social media, she shares her infectious joie de vivre – along with her love of family, fashion, and food – inspiring people to live their most colorful lives and to celebrate what makes them unique.
