Anna Netrebko is set to perform at the Hong Kong Arts Festival.

The festival announced that the first in-person event will be held after three years and will feature the star soprano alongside the Hong Philharmonic and tenor Yusif Eyvazov.

It will mark her return to the Hong Kong stage for the first time since 2016. The date of the concert is set to be announced in December.

The festival also announced that ballerina Natalia Osipova will perform. Osipova is a principal ballerina of The Royal Ballet in London and star of the 2019 documentary “Force of Nature.”

Netrebko is currently in Argentina where she will perform a recital with Eyvazov and a production of “Tosca.” She is also set to return to the Paris Opera for “La Forza del Destino” and the Wiener Staatsoper for “Aida” with Jonas Kaufmann and Elina Garanca.
