Classic Arts News   Anna Netrebko Makes Carnegie Hall Debut Tonight, Alongside Dmitri Hvorostovsky
Anna Netrebko, the glamorous Russian soprano who made the Time 100 earlier this month, makes her Carnegie Hall debut tonight in a joint concert of opera arias and duets with baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky. Asher Fisch conducts the Orchestra of St. Luke's in the 8 p.m. concert on the Perelman Stage in Carnegie's Isaac Stern Auditorium.

The program includes "Je veux vivre" from Gounod's Rom_o et Juliette,"Votre toast, je peux vous le rendre" from Bizet's Carmen,"Regnava nel silenzio" from Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor,Marfa's aria from Rimsky-Korsakov's The Tsar's Bride, "Cortigiani, vil razza dannata" from Verdi's Rigoletto,Yeletsky's aria from Tchaikovsky's Queen of Spades, Rachmaninoff's art song "Ne poi pri mne, krasavitsa" ("Do not sing to me, fair maiden"), "Nedda! Silvio, a quest'ora" from Leoncavallo's Pagliacci, Igor's Aria from Borodin's Prince Igor, and the final duet from Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin.

Netrebko had originally planned to make her Carnegie (and New York) recital debut, a program of Russian songs with pianist Malcolm Martineau, in March of 2006. But she cancelled that performance, saying in a statement, "I have sung very few recitals in my career, and I do not feel artistically ready yet to present a recital program on the great stage of Carnegie Hall."
