The Arena di Verona has announced that Anna Netrebko will return during the 2022 season.
The company revealed that the soprano will return alongside Yusif Evyazov in Franco Zeffirelli’s “Turandot” on August 4, 7, and 10, 2022.
The soprano will also sing the role of Abigaille in “Nabucco” for two performances on July 7 and 10, 2022. The performances will mark the first time Netrebko sings the role in Italy.
Netrebko recently made her role debut as “Turandot” at the Bayerische Staatsoper and has performed the opera in Verona, Russia, and the Metropolitan Opera. She is slated to interpret the Puccini work at the Berlin State Opera and the Met this season.
Meanwhile, the soprano will make her highly anticipated role debut as Abigaille at the Royal Opera House in January following cancelations at the Met and the Wiener Staatsoper.
The Arena di Verona is slated to open in June with “Carmen.”
