BMW has launched the first premium limousine with a bivalent (hydrogen and conventional) engine in a bid to reduce harmful emissions and fight climate change. Anna Netrebko was exclusively driven in the hydrogen-fuelled limousine on her German Tour 2007. Says frequently traveling Anna: "Protecting the environment and fighting climate change are significant challenges of our time. We cannot leave these tasks to politicians and scientists alone but must all play our part. That's why I'm raising my voice, too."
Since her triumphant 1995 San Francisco Opera debut, Anna Netrebko has starred with opera companies and symphony orchestras around the world. She brings her beautiful soprano voice, sensitive musicianship, acute dramatic portrayals and compelling stage presence to the Metropolitan Opera (War and Peace), Salzburg Festival (Don Giovanni), Royal Opera, Covent Garden (La clemenza di Tito), The Washington Opera (Rigoletto, Le nozze di Figaro, Idomeneo), and Bayerische Staatsoper (La traviata).
Miss Netrebko began her career with the Kirov Opera under the guidance
of Valery Gergiev, and continues to appear with that company in
performances both in St. Petersburg and on tour around the world. In
addition to roles in the Russian repertoire, her performances with the
Kirov have included Teresa in Berlioz' Benvenuto Cellini,La Sonnambula, and Lucia in Lucia di Lammermoor.
She recently became an exclusive recording artist with Deutsche
Grammophon, and she can also be heard on several complete recordings
under Maestro Gergiev on the Philips Label.
