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 returns to Chelsea Opera Group

Nelly will return to Queen Elisabeth Hall together with Chelsea Opera Group for a performance of Donizetti's Belisario, next year on February 13. This will mark her return to bel canto with COG after her 2007 appearance in Beatrice di Tenda.
Throughout her career, Nelly has dedicated herself to the revival of less performed operas and she has a long collaboration history with Opera Rara with who she recorded numerous bel canto masterpieces. In that tradition, she chose Donizetti's Caterina Coronaro as her annivesary performance this year of the VARA a Matinee Concerts at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw.
An opera in 3 acts, Belisario was premiered to great acclaim on February 4, 1836 at Teatro La Fenice, Venice and although it was very popular through out the 19th century, modern productions are very rare.
