Verbier, truly montanious

Jeremy Pound, the deputy editor of the BBC Music Magazine attended the Verbier recital and wrote a few words:
" final Verbier outing is to hear Angela Gheorghiu in recital with guitarist Milos Karadaglic at the Eglise (below). As well a couple of Dowland songs to start us off, they treat the audience to songs from Spain and South America and from their own countries of Romania and Montenegro, plus the Habanera from Bizet’s Carmen. Appearing on stage for the first time together, they make a flirtatious, fun and extremely charming pair, and she is evidently having a whale of a time, as are we in the audience"

+ a very funny observation regarding God's presence on the spot. Read here

AUDIO - Adriana Lecouvreur in Paris, sneak peek

France Musique broadcast Adriana Lecouvreur the other night, the recording of the June 23 performance at Opera National de Paris feat. Angela Gheorghiu, Marcelo Alvarez, Luciana D'intino and Alessandro Corbelli.

Loved every second of it. Someone asked me, didn't you have enough? Well…no, not in a million years. Know the libretto, know every sound, still I could listened to the opera time and time again. This is how much I love Angela's voice.

Two moments I particularly liked. For some to remember what they saw (like I do), for some others to wish to attend one of the future performances.

Be patient, the player is loading slow.

The monologue in the third act

and Poveri fiori, Adriana's aria in the last act

Werther, concert version, at the Salzburg Festival in August

Angela will perform in Werther, concert version, at the Salzburg Festival on August 15, 18 and 22. Isn't that great news?!

Then I said to myself," oh, how I wish I could go"...then "dream on, dear, 300+ euro opera tickets are not for you. Maybe when you grow up or meet prince charming..."
Lucky those who can attend. It will be great, I'm sure!

Adriana Lecouvreur in Paris, curtain call VIDEO, July 3

Adriana Lecouvreur in Paris was so beautiful. I had high hopes, I left totally satisfied. Can't tell how much I missed Angela's voice! As usually, the performance ended too soon. Maybe because I know every note of it and enjoy every sound so much that sometimes I forget to breathe.
