To follow and accompany Anna Netrebkos latest and highly anticipated VERISMO release, DG presents MANON LESCAUT – Live from Salzburg!

The release ties in with her upcoming performances of Manon Lescaut at the Met this November.

This outstanding concert performance of Manon Lescaut with Anna Netrebko and Yusif Eyvazov was the absolute highlight of the 2016’s Salzburg Festival – a moment of operatic glory, captured live for this unique release.


Anna Netrebko sings excerpts from Puccini’s “Manon Lescaut,” including the arias “In quelle trine morbide” (Act II) and “Sola, perduta, abbandonata” (Act IV) at a stage rehearsal.

Anna excelled herself and fascinated the audience with the perfection of her exceptional voice, her unrivaled interpretation and her devotion to this very part – she is the Manon Lescaut of our time. While Verismo already features the aria “In quelle trine morbide” and the fourth act of Manon Lescaut in a breathtaking studio-version, documenting her great passion to this work, the complete recording of Manon Lescaut will be a great addition to Anna’s fans and opera lovers alike.

It has also been a matter of personal importance and dedication for Anna to document this work in its entirety.
