Berlin, 1 September 2017 – DEAG Deutsche Entertainment AG (DEAG), Berlin (ISIN: DE000A0Z23G6, WKN: A0Z23G), listed in the Prime Standard, is continuing its exclusive collaboration with classical music stars Anna Netrebko and Yusif Eyvazov for the long term.

In addition, DEAG is securing an initial option for further European countries through 2022. This step underscores DEAG’s prominent classical music portfolio and continues its long-standing success story with both exceptional artists.
Peter Schwenkow, Chairman of DEAG’s Executive Board, is looking forward to the ongoing partnership: “We’re proud to already be in our 14th year of cooperation with Anna Netrebko and are excited to present many more concerts from this exceptional artist in the future.

In addition, we are laying the foundations for future positive business development in our Classics & Jazz segment.”
The renewal of this exclusive contract sees both exceptional artists honouring a collaboration that has existed since 2004. Besides successful live concerts, it has included numerous TV productions that have inspired more than 100 million people worldwide and produced some of the best selling classical CDs and DVDs.
