Sporting her favourite Katherine Jenkins cast-off once again, Anna Netrebko joined a host of other singers in Salzburg last night for a special charity concert which raised a massive €300,000 for Pakistan's flood victims. Despite the short notice (the concert was only announced on Sunday), an enthusiastic audience of over 1,500 packed out the Haus Für Mozart.
Netrebko sang Il bacio by Luigi Arditi, followed by the duet Quanto amore from L'elisir d'amore with Erwin Schrott, who later treated the audience to some tango. With Piotr Beczala she performed a duet from La bohème. Beczala returned for Ah! lève toi, soleil from Roméo et Juliette. Other performers included Christopher Maltman, Mikhail Petrenko, Joel Prieto and Anna Prohaska.
