Sorry to barge in, but I would like to say that a young soprano who reminds me of Netrebko is Diana Garifullina.

I can't remember who it was that called someone  "the next Netrebko".  I am

understand what it means to those who do so, and I don't see any reason to
criticize them.
It's a way of using fewer words rather than more.
