Soprano Anna Netrebko is engaged. The Russian-born singer, 42, told her followers on Twitter and Facebook that the lucky groom will be tenor Yusif Eyvazov, 37, from Azerbaijan.

The brief statement indicated that the singers began dating in March of this year when they appeared together in a production of Puccini’s Manon Lescaut at the Rome Opera House. No date has been set yet for the wedding.

The announcement comes six months after Netrebko announced that she and her longtime partner, Uruguayan bass-baritone Erwin Schrott, had separated.

YouTube clip reportedly features Eyvazov and Netrebko together in Manon Lescaut.
