Being the first classical musician who was included to the Time Magazine’s TIME 100 List of Most Influential People in the World, Anna is one of the most sought-after opera singers of the world. An iconic figure on the scene, Anna is extremely popular outside it also, thanks to the versatility of her talent in particular. The collaboration with the Imperial Porcelain Manufactory opens her new and unexpected character line of an artist.
The Aida porcelain collection is created completely basing on sketches by Anna Netrebko, embodying her own reading of the famous Giuseppe Verdi’s Opera Aida. Anna will make a debut in this Opera in the summer of 2017 at Salzburg Festival in cooperation with the famous Italian conductor Riccardo Muti. Namely this music masterpiece by Verdi, written in 1871 by order of the Khedive (Viceroy) of Egypt Ismail Pasha for the Cairo Opera House’s opening, inspired Anna to create the exquisite designs for personal porcelain collection.
