On 14 May, Anna Netrebko and the Mariinsky Orchestra will perform under the baton of Valery Gergiev at one of the best concert venues in the world – the Wiener Musikverein. The concert will be hosted by the Großer Saal which can accommodate more than two thousand people. Its programme includes works by Giuseppe Verdi and Igor Stravinsky. To be performed are arias and symphonic excepts from Giuseppe Verdi’s Macbeth, Aida, La forza del destino, and Nabucco, as well as the suite from Igor Stravinsky’s The Firebird.
