Anna & Bryn - Let's rock Hamburg !

Anna Netrebko: Star soprano visits Hamburg

Summit at the Laeiszhalle

Two world stars - Anna Netrebko and the bass-baritone Bryn Terfel: On 09th September will be the classical concert of the year. The advance sale starts tomorrow at the Hamburger Abendblatts' ticket shops.

At the christening of the cruiser "Mein Schiff" was she in Hamburg, but without singing. Now are "Elbklassik", the Hamburg-based subsidiary company of the concert promoter Peter Schwenkow, and the Hamburger Abendblatt taking Anna Netrebko for one concert to the Laeiszhalle in Hamburg. On 09th September it's getting down there to a summit of that special kind: The Russian star soprano performs together with Bryn Terfel, the great Welsh bass-baritone, one of the most demanded exponents of his voice. Schwenkow could made this coup perfect after the by him organised Netrebko concert at the last friday at the Munich Königsplatz (14 500 audience). The advance sale for this evening starts on Friday morning at 08:00 a.m.

The singers' covenant was so short term, that the accompanying orchestra is not yet decided already, but till now only who will conduct the concert: the international seasoned maestro Emmanuel Villaume, who will become the director of the Slovenian philharmonics in September. Also the programme is not yet stipulated in all its particulars, but it could be geared to the Munich concerts' programme, where she was accompanied by the baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky. There were in the first half exclusively sang acts of Russian composers - cutouts of Tchaikovsky's operas "Pique Dame", "Iolanta" and "Eugene Onegin"as well as Michail Glinka's "Ruslan and Lydmila". The second part was more international with acts of Strauss and Wagner as well as cutouts out of operas of Verdi, Puccini, Mascagni and Leoncavallo.

Anna Netrebko rehearsals currently at Baden-Baden for the premiere of Tchaikovsky's opera "Iolanta" on 18th July and gives a Liederabend with Daniel Barenboim at the Salzburger Festspiele on 11th August.


At Hamburg is the setting for this performance much more intimate than in Munich; the Laeiszhalle is a guarantor for a dignified concert atmosphere and a good acoustics - best condictions for savour two of the greatest voices of our times.

Oh... this will be beautiful! And you'll be there to tell us how it was, right?

I would really like to go there, but 285 Euro is a lot of money and I would have to fly to Hamburg, book a hotel etc. Nobody will pay me this. I was going to school till 09th July so I don't have own money and my parents will not pay all this - especially they don't like opera...

Carlos will you go there ??

Irina hat gesagt…

I didn't know it was sooo expensive. Normally the concerts are not so expensive. But then again I was in Vienna before her concert there, with Rolando and Placido Domingo. And the lady at the box office told us the ticket is 350 euro. Wow. A lot of money!

Hope Carlos goes. Somebody has to tell us how it was.
