Recital at the Shanghai International Arts Festival, October 30


Anglea will perform at the 16th edition of the Shanghai International Arts Festival on October 30, 2014. She will be accompanied by Romanian pianist Alexandru Petrovici.

Repertoire for this concert includes classic tracks of Chopin, Debussy and Rachmaninoff

First AG autograph I've ever got


My treasure box contains the opera&concert tickets from all the performances I have attended for the past seven years. And also many programs, most of them signed by the artists.  To my great joy, I found this one. It dates back to October 2008, it was Faust at the Vienna State Opera. My first eye to eye meeting with Angela. Needless to say I couldn't say a word. Hope at least I smiled…I don't remember. It was a thunder strike. You all know the feeling :)

So here it is. The very first autograph Angela signed for me. My preeeeciouuuussssss! 


Have a sunny Saturday!

Program for the concert in Regensburg on July 27


Some might say it's post event info. It is, but as it wasn't made public before and many asked me if I knew what Angela sung, so here it is. Many thanks to Martine! 
I also asked her how Tu che di del sei cinta was, as I've never listen to it live. Liu was fantastic. Puccini wrote Liu for her, said Martine. I secretly hope to see it included in future programs.

There were five encores, All the things you are, Guten Abend, Gut' Nacht and……….. ?

VIDEO footage from La Boheme at ROH


Official footage posted earlier today on the Royal Opera House's YouTube page. Short interviews and a sum up of La Boheme in only 3:40 minutes.
The final performance of La Boheme of this season is on Saturday, July 19.

Enjoy!

A world stage


Room 31 at the ROH may seem pretty (oh, so pretty!) crowded these days. But what a fabulous crowd.
When in London, make sure you do not miss them on stage during the final performances of this season.

Royal Opera House. A world stage.
Indeed!

#ROHboheme, seen on Twitter

The large number of tweets from last night's live screening of La Boheme around UK prove one more that people are addicted to their phones 24/7. This is how I found out that there were more than 6000 people in Trafalgas Square in London and that at some point the police restricted the acces as there were too many people and there wasn't any spot to sit down anymore. Great!
