The shipping company has announced this Monday that Anna Netrebko, accompanied by the Berlin Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra, will sing the premiere of the company's anthem "Ocean of Love".
The appearance of the 37-year-old soprano at the ship's baptism is, according to TUI Cruises CEO Richard J. Vogel, also the prelude of a long-term cooperation with the opera star. TUI Cruises sponsor the Open-Air concert of Anna Netrebko and Dmitri Hvorostovsky at the Königplatz in Munich on 10. July 2009. TUI Cruises is also supporting the singer in their commitment to an SOS Children's Village in Russia. The newly formed TUI Cruises, based in Hamburg, is a joint venture between TUI AG and the U.S. shipping company Royal Caribbean Cruise Ltd.
