The Met star who is now a realtormain
The Russian soprano Marina Poplavskaya Guedouar had it all: a full diary, a bustling agency (ZemskyGreen), major roles ahead.
She stood in for Netrebko at Covent Garden in 2007 and was chosen to replace Angela Gheorghiu the following year as Elisabetta in Verdi’s Don Carlo.
At the Met, she starred as Natasha in War and Peace, then Liu in Turandot, then Violetta, which she took over from Netrebko both in New York and replacing her on a Japan tour.
And then, in 2014, she dropped out.
Here’s what she’s doing now, and why:
