The once and future queen

In addition to her first Met Aida performances next season, forthcoming projects for the one and only Anna Netrebko just keep gushing out. 

According to an interview in Classica magazine (as quoted on the website Revopéra) the diva’s plans include her first Lisa in Pikovaya dama at Salzburg in 2018, conducted by Mariss Jansons; a debut at Bayreuth as Elsa in 2019; the previously mentioned Salome; and, oh did I mention two new Verdi roles, Amelia in Ballo and Leonora in Forza?
