Anna Netrebko and her husband, tenor Yusif Eyvazov, released a new duet album of love songs, Romanza, on September 1, 2017. Eighteen original romantic love songs were written and composed specially for the couple by Russian producer Igor Krutoy. Romanza is not only Anna Netrebko’s first duet album with husband Yusif, but also her first foray out of the realm of traditional core repertoire. Producer Igor Krutoy wrote all 18 album tracks with Anna and Yusif in mind. Many years of working together closely and a one of a kind friendship that stems from his collaboration with Anna and Yusif allowed Igor to write love songs that not only perfectly match their voices, but also are an homage to love in general. Anna met her husband, tenor Yusif Eyvazov, when they starred together in Manon Lescaut at the Rome Opera in March 2014. Since their wedding in December 2015, the couple has appeared in concert and on the opera stage together worldwide. She and Yusif open La Scala’s season on December 7, 2017 in Andrea Chénier; it will be her role debut as Maddalena. Here are Ms. Neterebko and her husband in an extended trailer from this recording:

Message from the diva: Dear friends, I am very sorry but I have caught a cold that forces me to cancel my first performance of Il trovatore in Vienna on September 4. I really hate to cancel and to disappoint my audience, as you all know, but I need to take care of myself so that I can be healthy for the two other performances of the run. I cannot wait to sing for you on Thursday. Her replacement on Monday will be Maria José Siri.
