Two of the biggest names in opera joined forces for a live performance from historic Red Square in the heart of Moscow, captured in stunning sound and vision with 18 high definition cameras and 5.1 cinema surround sound.
Recorded at a superb live concert on 19 June 2013, Anna Netrebko and Dmitri Hvorostovsky returned to their native Russia, singing a brilliant program of popular arias and duets from some of the world’s best-loved operas, including Tosca, Eugene Onegin, and, celebrating Verdi's bicentenary, Il trovatore.
They were accompanied by Russia's State Academic Symphony Orchestra “Evgeny Svetlanov” and the huge forces of the Academic Grand Choir Masters of Choral Singing, under the baton of Constantine Orbelian.
Every detail of the once-in-a-lifetime event was faithfully captured by director Frank Hof, whose work includes the memorable Anna Netrebko, Placido Domingo, and Rolando Villazon performance at Berlin’s Waldbuhne, which Classical CD Review called “an absolute knock-out”… The two brought “the audience to a stunned silence with the despairing aria from Eugene Onegin” Bloomberg reported.
7500 people were present on the Red Square, more than 400 cinemas have screened the concert worldwide. Millions of viewers have seen this great evening.
