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.
Singing Annina, in the same La Traviata production, is the young soprano Joanne Roughton-Arnold. Joanne is Nelly's student and has recently performed among others Norina in Don Pasquale and Euridice in Gluck's Orfeo and Euridice with Morley Opera and has in her repertoire roles like Ariel in The Tempest, The Queen of the Night, Fiordiligi and the fiendish Zerbinetta in Adriane auf Naxos.
