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.

"The event of the week for me, however, was undoubtedly the Chelsea Opera Group’s concert performance at Queen Elizabeth Hall of Verdi’s La Traviata. Gianluca Marciano conducted a splendidly paced account, and Cosmin Ifrim as Alfredo, and Alan Opie as his father, sang robustly and captivatingly. Nelly Miricioiu seemed to bring a lifetime’s experience, aptly enough, to the role of Violetta, but her vocal instrument was in impeccable form. Right to that all-important single-note affirmative dying cry, she was well-nigh transcendent."
