Angela Gheorghiu’s rise to international stardom began with her debut at London’s Royal Opera House in 1992, when she sang Mimì in La bohème. It was two years later, also at Covent Garden, that she made her decisive breakthrough with a new production of La traviata. Her shimmering tonal beauty and intense, but refined artistry have made her one of the defining sopranos of our time. These qualities – and her sheer charm and charisma – are abundantly in evidence throughout the seven recital discs in this box set.
