About

Valery Gergiev celebrates the two bicentennials of this operatic year 2013: those of Wagner and Verdi!

Valery Gergiev opens this concert with the first act of Otello, a psychological and bloody drama written after Shakespeare's play (and Rossini's opera), in which greed and jealousy lead to the murder of the purest creature. Anna Netrebko, one of the most sought-after Desdemona of the operatic world, sings with Aleksandrs Antonenko. Anna Netrebko and Valery Gergiev have collaborated many times, notably for the recording of the Russian Album (Deutsche Grammophon).
