Yuri Nikolaevich Netrebko, the father of opera star Anna Netrebko, hopes that she and her future husband shall be married in an Orthodox ceremony in one of the churches of Krasnodar. “Anna has usually agreed with me. We hope that the wedding shall take place in the St Ilya parish in Krasnodar, where Anna was baptised”, he stated in an interview published on Wednesday in the newspaper Tvoi Den (Your Day). At present, Ms Netrebko is busy with preparations for the opera film L’Bohème. She is teaching her fiancé, the Uruguayan baritone Erwin Schott, how to speak Russian. “They should be free in a little while, and then, along with me and our guests in the church watching, they should be crowned as man and wife”, Mr Netrebko said. Recently, it became known that the singer, who now lives in Austria, is two months along in her pregnancy.
