Anna Netrebko: The Queen That Changes Diapers

Anna talks Anna with Peter Jarolin of the Kurier
In a new Kurier interview, Anna Netrebko reveals her thoughts about the title role of Donizetti's Anna Bolena which she will debut in Vienna this Saturday, April 2. Other topics in the interview include new recordings (she hopes the performances will be recorded for CD and DVD), upcoming roles (Manon Lescaut and Il Trovatore), her future plans for singing at the Vienna State Opera with Erwin Schrott (Le Nozze di Figaro and Eugene Onegin) and how her German language skills are coming along (she hopes once son Tiago starts kindergarten that he will help teach
her). When the soprano admits that she has always wanted to play a queen on stage, the interviewer says that she is already the "Königen der Oper" to which she responds that all of that doesn't matter when you're changing your son's diapers.
