Live from Red Square, Moscow starring Anna Netrebko and Dmitri Hvorostovsky


Two of the biggest names in opera join forces for a live performance from the heart of Moscow. Anna Netrebko is one of the world’s most highly regarded opera singers. Acclaimed baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky appears regularly on the world’s greatest stages. Appearing for the first time together in Red Square, Netrebko and Hvorostovsky performed for one night only on June 19, 2013 in front of an audience of 7,500 people. The exciting program included popular arias and duets from some of the world’s best loved operas, including Tosca, Eugene Onegin, and Il trovatore. The two Russian singers were accompanied by conductor Constantine Orbelian, Russia’s State Academic Symphony Orchestra ‘Evgeny Svetlanov’ and a large chorus. Director Frank Hof (whose work includes the memorable Anna Netrebko, Placido Domingo, and Rolando Villazon performance at Berlin’s Waldbuhne), faithfully captured every detail of the production with its stunning backdrop of Red Square, using 18 high definition cameras and 5.1 cinema surround sound, to create a truly spectacular record of this historic, not-to-be-missed musical event.
