One of the highlights of the 2000-2001 season at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, this recital, recorded live, features a
stunning collection of Angela Gheorghiu’s favourite opera arias. Accompanied by the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House under conductor
Ion Marin, she sings such well-loved arias as ‘Lascia ch’io pianga’ from Handel’s Rinaldo, ‘Porgi amor’ from Le nozze di Figaro, and favourites from
Puccini’s Turandot and Madama Butterfly. Of particular interest is an aria by the Romanian composer Tiberiu Brediceanu, and Angela’s rendition of
Frederick Loewe’s ‘I could have danced all night’.
Features bonus interview footage, picture galleries, and a video clip of Casta Diva.
