In an interview published in the Thursday issue of "Seitenblicke Magazin" Schrott said: "It will happen soon - very soon, we know the place, and we know the date."
Schrott provided some more details: "It does not matter whether the celebration is large or small. In any case it will be nothing pompous. But we want to have our our families - and they have to travel from southern Russia and South America. Therefore it was not easy to find a date convenient for everybody. But surprisingly, we did it."
Netrebko said: "We are a very happy couple. And of course we will marry. But it is difficult to draw up all necessary documents. It takes more than a week."
The wedding could take place at the second half of August, after Netrebko's lied recital in Salzburg on 17. Aug and before her concert at the Red Square in Moscow on 4. Sep 2009. Those dates would be also convenient for Schrott, who is singing the title role of Mozart's Don Giovanni at the Theater an der Wien until 14. Aug, being his next performance in Mos in Egitto at the Opernhaus Zürich on 19. Sep 2009.
