Anna Netrebko Shows Strength: Son Tiago Is Autistic, Separation From Erwin Schrott, Mother's Early Death, Weight Gain And More

In what is certainly her most courageous interview during her professional career, soprano Anna Netrebko opens up about the most personal aspects of her life. Revelations include the disclosure of her son, Tiago, being born with Autism. She speaks out for the first time telling mothers in a similar situation not to be afraid and there are tools to help with the education of their children. In most recent history, American soprano Beverly Sills struggled with her own children: Meredith ("Muffy") was born profoundly deaf and has multiple sclerosis, while Peter, Jr. ("Bucky") is severely mentally disabled. Sills restricted her performing schedule to care for her children. Ms. Netrebko also discusses her most recent separation from bass-baritone Erwin Schrott who is the father of her child. She shows her strength and determination as a woman to get through these hardships. Her father is also interviewed about the death of Anna's mother with whom she was very close. This insightful interview will have fans seeing a very human side to one of the world's greatest opera stars. [Source]
