Anna Netrebko as Rosina in Rossini's "Il Barbiere di Siviglia" in 1996

This is a real treasure! A 24-year old Anna Netrebko as Rosina and Vladimir Samsonov as Figaro in the premiere of Rossini's "Il Barbiere di Siviglia" at the Mariinsky Theater of St. Petersburg on 9. March 1996. Alexander Polyanichko conducts the Chorus and Orchestra of the Mariinsky Theater.
Duet of Rosina and Figaro, Il Barbiere di Siviglia, Anna Netrebko (Rosina), Vladimir Samsonov (Figaro), Mariinsky Theater, St. Petersburg, 9. March 1996.


  1. 14 years ago!!! What a treasure indeed. This seems to be one of the earliest video recordings of Anna, right? Only "Ruslan and Lyudmila" was earlier (1995).

  2. Yeah, one of the earliest! I had posted some videoclips which I think they were from 1992! Probably those ones are the earliest! ;-) It would be nice to get some more scenes from this Barbiere...
