Barcode: 0190295889999

Composer: Händel, Mozart, Massenet, Charpentier, Puccini, Cilea, Bellini, Brediceanu, Loewe
Other participants: Angela Gheorghiu, Roberto Alagna, Ion Marin, Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden

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.
