The woman behind the diva

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.

In Bocca al lupo!

Marianne Cornetti will sing tonight, for the first time in Covent Garden, one of her signature roles Amneris, in Verdi's Aida. This is a mighty occasion, as it is also a brand new production of David McVicar, l'enfant terrible of opera stagings.
Marianne will take on the impetous role of Amneris for all six dates and will fly to Timisoara in between for her performance as Princess de Bouillon on the 29th.
