Anna Netrebko has released a statement regarding her management and professional life.
The statement noted, “There have recently been inaccurate reports in the Russian and international media as to my personal and professional life and as to my future performances. I state that the only accurate information about myself comes from me, Trafalgar Strategy in London or Prof. Dr. Christian Schertz in Berlin. The only verified information about my artistic activities appears in the ‘Schedule’ section of my website annanetrebko.com. My general manager is Mr. Miguel Esteban in the United Kingdom. Berin Iglesias Art, led by Mr. Maxim Berin, is an agent for concerts in the territories of Russia, CIS, and the Baltics, reporting to Mr. Esteban.”
The statement comes as Russian media outlets have reported that the soprano is performing at the Mariinsky Theatre during the Stars of the White Nights festival. It also comes as several outlets reported she had broken with her previous management team Centre Stage Artist Management.
Netrebko has been under fire for previous ties to President Putin in Russia and has released statements against the war over the past month. The soprano is currently performing at the Opera de Monte-Carlo, where she is singing the title role of “Manon Lescaut.”
