World-renowned soprano Anna Netrebko is ‘a singer who simply has it all: a voice of astounding purity, precision, and scope… combined with a dazzling charisma’ (San Francisco Chronicle). Her much anticipated return to the Royal Albert Hall sees her singing the title role of Tchaikovsky's Iolanta.

After the sold-out success of Anna Netrebko’s European tour, Tchaikovsky’s glorious one-act opera, full of irresistibly enchanting melodies, comes to the Royal Albert Hall for one performance only.

In the mountains of Southern France in the 15th century, a blind princess has her sight restored by a mysterious doctor through the power of virginal love.

‘Anna Netrebko sounded gloriously comfortable in her native language and pouring out a stream of gold-shot-with-silver sound even throughout the range. I doubt if the role has been sung better in living memory…’ Hugh Canning, Opera Magazine

‘…the role proved to be a near perfect match for her lustrous, resonant soprano’. New York Times.
