  2. London is still close. But I'll wait for her to sing with somebody else. Maybe next year, who knows?

  3. Hi,
    Thanks for your great blog on Angela Gheorghiu!

    I caught Gheorghiu's performance in Singapore (I live here.. so it was a great delight to hear that she was going to perform here!) last Saturday, and it was truly wonderful. The first time watching her live for me, and third for my partner.

    Marius Manea held his fort - he sang beautifully (especially Verdi's Luisa Miller "Quando Le Sere Al Placido"). Gheorghiu.. was spectacular. Her Catalani's La Wally "Ebben" almost moved my partner to tears, and she gave three encores!!

    I sneakily took two pictures during the last applause. If you want the pics for your blog, do let me know, I can send them to you.

  4. @kiya-and-louie - thanks for the appreciation. Keep checking back.
    Yes, please send me the photos. I think there's a lot of people waiting to see them.
    What were the encores? Hers and his? I couldn't find out yet.
