NEW YORK (AP) - Opera singers Anna Netrebko and Erwin Schrott have separated.

The soprano's spokesmen issued a statement Monday saying her relationship with the bass-baritone had ended "amicably" after six years.

Netrebko cites "demanding schedules and the resulting constant time apart" as the reason for the split.

The pair have a 5-year-old son Tiago. Netrebko and Schrott were not married.

She says "we treasure the time we spent together and of course remain devoted parents to our son." She adds: "We are also committed to honoring our scheduled joint professional appearances."
