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.

A day to Celebrate

Today, two very important people in Nelly's life are celebrating their birthday.
The first one is none other than Maria Tudosa, Nelly's mother, a wonderful artist and human being who has inspired Nelly in her career as an opera singer. Like we've mentioned in previous posts, Maria herself was a singer who later on dedicated herself to painting and poetry.

The second person in Nelly's life to celebrate his birthday today is David Harper, noted accompanist, vocal coach and cherished friend. Their collaboration started shortly after Nelly settled in England and continues to the day and together they have given historic recitals.

La multi ani draga noastra Cella, happy birthday David!
