International opera superstar Anna Netrebko visited The Greene Space at WQXR for an exclusive interview and performance to celebrate the release of her new solo recording, Verismo.

Netrebko was joined by her husband, tenor Yusif Eyvazov, for their first joint New York City appearance since their marriage late last year. The couple each performed an aria, came together for a duet and sit down for an intimate interview with WQXR's morning host Jeff Spurgeon. Accompanying Netrebko and Eyvazov on piano was the artistic director of Juilliard's Marcus Institute, Brian Zeger.

Program details:
Puccini: "Tu che di gel sei cinta" from Turandot
Puccini: "Non piangere, Liù" from Turandot
Puccini: "Tutta su me ti posa," "Manon, senti, amor mio," "Sei tu che piangi?," "Sola perduta, abbandonata" from Act IV of Manon Lescaut

Selected performance videos from the event are below so grab your headphones:

What a wonderful presentation by the great Anna Netreko and Yusif Eyvazov as well. I will be getting a copy "Verismo" for sure. Thank you WQXR for making this event happen and, most especially, for streaming it on your website!
