Angela Gheorghiu has recently been named by the Telegraph as one of the top 10 opera stars of this age. The brilliant Romanian born soprano has had resounding success in her field. In 1992, she made her international debut at Royal Opera House Covent Garden with La Bohème. In the same year she made her debut at the Metropolitan Opera New York and at the Vienna State Opera. It was in the Royal Opera House Covent Garden that she first sang her much acclaimed “La Traviata” in 1994, when the BBC cleared out its schedules to broadcast the opera.
Angela was signed in 1995 with Decca and by EMI Classics in 1998. All her CDs have received widespread critical acclaim and have been awarded many prizes such as Gramophone Awards, Diapason d’Or Awards, Choc du Monde de la Musique in France, Cecilia Prize in Belgium, Deutsche Schallplattenkritik-Preis in Germany, the Echo Award, the Italian Musica e dischi Foreign Lyric Production Award, and the USA Critics’ Award, to name a few. Gheorghiu won the title of “Female Artist of the Year” at the Classical Brit Awards in 2001 and 2010.
