Angela Gheorghiu: Live from Covent Garden (CD)
Label: PRX/Warner Classics/Parlophone
Release Date: 01/20/17

Angela Gheorghiu, hauntingly seductive of tone and an artist of acute sensitivity, enjoys a special relationship with London’s Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, where she first captured the imagination and hearts of the world’s opera-lovers.

This 2001 live recital with orchestra showcases Gheorghiu in roles she has championed in the theatre or on record (Adriana Lecouvreur, Madama Butterfly, Manon), and provides tantalising glimpses of the magic she brings to Bellini, Mozart and Handel – and the music of her native Romania and Broadway.

Angela Gheorghiu’s rise to international stardom began with her debut at London’s Royal Opera House in 1992, when she sang Mimì in La bohème. It was two years later, also at Covent Garden, that she made her decisive breakthrough with a new production of La traviata. Her shimmering tonal beauty and intense, but refined artistry have made her one of the defining sopranos of our time.
