Featuring opera singer Anna Netrebko and acclaimed baritone Dmitri Hvorostovsky, “Live from the Red Square” includes popular arias and duets from some of the world’s best-loved operas. This includes Tosca, Eugene Onegin and Il Trovatore. The singers are accompanied by conductor Constantine Oberlian, Russia’s State Academic Symphony Orchestra and a large chorus.
