Berin Iglesias Art is very pleased to present a unique opera concert with soprano Anna Netrebko and tenor Yusif Eyvazov accompanied by the Würth Philharmonic Orchestra. On February, 12, the most celebrated opera stars will perform at the vibrant cultural heart of Dubai - at Dubai Opera.
The reigning prima donna of the 21st century, Anna Netrebko has redefined what it means to be an opera star and has become the most acclaimed soprano in the world. In live performance and on award-winning recordings, her portrayals of opera’s most iconic heroines have already made an indelible mark. Now, as she ventures into bolder, more dramatic repertoire, she continues to reach new heights. From singing at the opening ceremony of the 2014 Winter Olympics to becoming the first classical artist named to TIME magazine’s list of the world’s 100 most influential people, Anna Netrebko serves as opera’s leading global ambassador and is widely recognized as one of today’s most compelling, committed performing artists in any genre.
Together with the Azerbaijani dramatic tenor Yusif Eyvazov, they make a breathtaking partnership both on stage and in life. Born in Algeria, Eyvazov has mastered his artistry in Italy. His repertoire mostly consists of the roles from the Italian verismo: Andrea Chenier (Andrea Chenier), Mario Cavaradossi (Tosca), Calaf (Turandot),Manrico (Il trovatore), Alfredo (La traviata), Don Carlos, Des Grieux (Manon Lescaut), Rodolfo (La bohème), Maurizio (Adriana Lecouvreur), Macduff (Macbeth), Radames (Aida) and Canio (Pagliacci), Gherman (The Queen of Spades).[/vc_text_img][vc_text_img text_img_config="text-image-var" text_background="text-background-white" alignment_horizontal="center" alignment_vertical="center" image="243"]
Critics call him “an exciting tenor whose pure human voice trained to do exceptional things reaches us in a way that no other sound does…”. His sound is lyrical, stentorian and markedly Italianate. Yusif Eyvazov’s celebrated appearances include the Metropolitan Opera, Teatro alla Scala, the Vienna State Opera, the National Opera of Paris, the Bolshoi Theatre, the Mariinsky Theatre, Covent Garden and many others. In 2018 Eyvazov had been awarded the title of the People´s Artist of Azerbaijan. In the 17/18 season Yusif Eyvazov and Anna Netrebko had the release of new cross-over album “Romanza” for Deutsche Grammophon.

This unique evening at Dubai Opera will be filled with the magnificent arias of Verdi, Puccini, Rimsky-Korsakov and many others.

31.03.2021 The Dubai Recital
For the first time, Maxim Vengerov and Evgeny Kissin play together on one stage.
The 1986 opening concert of the Moscow Tchaikovsky Competition was an extraordinary event. After the spectacular performance of Maxim Vengerov and Evgeny Kissin, the critics were overwhelmed to such an extent that they asked themselves if a competition was still needed. They clearly had the feeling that they had already heard the winners. Today, the former child prodigies belong to the most important contemporary artists. Interestingly enough, until now, they have never given a concert together. Therefore, their performance at the Dubai CC Forum is nothing less than a historic event. Seeing and hearing these two titans of classical music playing together is a unique opportunity not to be missed![/vc_text_img][vc_text_img text_img_config="image-text-var" text_background="text-background-white" alignment_horizontal="center" alignment_vertical="center" image="829"]
Masterpieces of all time
All about this concert promises to be spectacular. During their reunion, on March the 31st, Maxim Vengerov and Evgeny Kissin will perform some of the best and most demanding masterpieces ever written for their instruments. Vengerov will play Johann Sebastian Bach's Chaconne in D minor, a sublime gem of the violin solo repertoire which merges the form and the spirituality into sounds of mysterious sensuality and depth. The piece for violin and piano “Lonely sail” by the Maltese-American composer Alexey Shor is going to be a melancholic counterpart to Bach's music, an expression of contemporary beauty and aesthetics reflected by the architectural audacity of the Dubai Opera.[/vc_text_img][vc_text_img text_img_config="text-image-var" text_background="text-background-white" alignment_horizontal="center" alignment_vertical="center" image="828"]
As one of the most important interpreters of Frédéric Chopin's music, Evgeny Kissin will render both the Polish composer's Impromptu in G-flat Major and his famous Polonaise in A-flat major. Juxtaposing the romantic Impromptu and the heroic Polonaise, he will shed light on two important facets of the composer's oeuvre. Concluding the spectacular programme, the two musicians will perform Johannes Brahms's magnificent Second Sonata, called a “Sonata of love and songs” by the composer's biographer Max Kalbeck. The music written on the shores of Lake Thin in Switzerland is indeed overflowing with melodies.[/vc_text_img][vc_text_img text_img_config="image-text-var" text_background="text-background-white" alignment_horizontal="center" alignment_vertical="center" image="827"]
