Anna Netrebko Files Labor Grievance Against the Metropolitan Opera

UPDATE – In a previous version of this article, it said, “Netrebko is set to perform with Gelb’s wife Ukrainian-Canadian conductor Keri-Lynn Wilson in November in a production of “Tosca” at the Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires.” Representatives of Keri-Lynn Wilson have reached out to OperaWire and stated that she will not be performing with Netrebko in Tosca as per our article. However, as of this writing, the Teatro Colon de Buenos Aires still has Wilson listed as the lone conductor of that production, which features Netrebko as one of the performers (see image at the bottom of this article for reference).

‘Every time I can sing at Teatro alla Scala I feel like coming home.
