Notes and Editorial Reviews

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.
