Hailed as a singing-actress, Nelly Miricioiu is one of the most versatile artists of our day. Her repertoire extends from Mozart and bel canto to Verdi, Puccini and the verismo to modern Italian opera Respighi and Zadonai, taking in French and Russian composers too. Her artistry has been praised by everyone, from fans to critics and fellow opera singers. She has sung all over the world on the most prestigious opera stages, from the Royal Opera House to La Scala, to the Met,to Sydney Opera House, to Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires. For all that and more you can visit her official website, www.nellymiricioiu.com. This is something different. Rarely can all the official data and information convey the soul of an artist, the energy behind the artistry, the story behind each character, the person who goes home once the thick opera curtains have fallen. This is why Nelly and I, have come up with an idea of a blog. Welcome to Nelly's blog,the woman behind the diva.

Nelly is a great artist and even a greater human being. She loves the stage, her devoted fans and laughs when she is called La Miricioiu or at the idea that she is a "cult diva". She just loves being on stage and giving it her all.

La Miricioiu considers herself as much British as Romanian. She lives in London with Barry, her wonderful husband, Daniel their 18 year old son and her mother who at 80 is a fervent artist.

When she is not singing she loves cooking, throwing dinner parties for her friends, playing the piano, she's currently very much into Beethoven and listening to all sorts of music like Led Zeppelin, Queen, Muse, Red Hot Chili Peppers or Queen.

When Strictly Come Dancing and X Factor are on TV, you will find her in front of the TV and voting for her favourites competitors, also making sure that the shows are recorded should she be away singing in some corner of the world.

And when she's not singing, or cooking or watching TV, she likes surfing the Internet. Yes, she is very tech-savy and thinks You Tube is one of the best inventions ever.

She admires people like Freddie Mercury or the Romanian folk singer Maria Tanase and has a soft spot for Dolly Parton.

And this blog will give you some of those insights, as well as photos, complete performance information and should you have any questions or curiosities feel free to contact me at contact@nellymiricioiu.com.
