Nelly will reprise her role as Adriana Lecouvreur on March 29 at the National Opera House in Timisoara, Romania. After her triumphant debut in 2000 at La Scala, Adriana has become one of Nelly's signature roles and she continued to perform it to great acclaim in Rome, London, Amsterdam and Bucharest. Last year, after the triumph in the role of Adriana, Tim Ashley wrote for The Guardian: "it would be difficult to imagine a greater Adriana than Miricioiu, who sang like a goddess and relentlessly probed the psyche of a woman who believes herself to be "the handmaid of creative genius" but whose artistry is dependent on her own unacknowledged emotional volatility. We believed in the artistry, too: some Adrianas are fazed by Racine, though Miricioiu performed him like one born to it."
