While a student at the conservatory of Saint Petersburg, Netrebko worked as a floor cleaner as an odd job at St Petersburg's Mariinsky Theatre (home of the Kirov Opera)[1]. Later, she auditioned for the Mariinsky company, where conductor Valery Gergiev recognised her from her prior odd-job work. He subsequently became her vocal mentor.[2] Guided by him, she made her operatic stage debut at the Mariinsky as Susanna in Le Nozze di Figaro. She went on to sing many prominent roles with the Kirov Opera, including Amina in La Sonnambula, Pamina in Die Zauberflöte, Rosina in The Barber of Seville, and Lucia in Lucia di Lammermoor.
