Notes & Reviews:

Loved for the dark beauty of her voice, her dramatic commitment and her truly operatic rise to fame, Angela Gheorgiu is now among the most high profile classical musicians in the world. This new collection of her greatest recordings includes all her signature roles - Adina in Donizetti's L'Elisir d'Amore with her husband, tenor Roberto Alagna, Mimi in Puccini's La Boheme, several of her great French roles and, of course, Violetta in Verdi's La Traviata.
