- In stock


In this recording Angela Gheorghiu brings us some of Puccini’s best loved arias. A number of these are from La Bohème, including 'Sì. Mi chiamano Mimì' and 'Donde lieta usci', both sung by Mimì. It is this opera and role which marked both Angela’s graduation from the Bucharest Music Academy in 1990 and her international debut at the Royal Opera House, which shot her to stardom and today she is without parallel on stage in this repertoire. The disc also contains 'Un bel dì vedremo' and 'Tu, tu piccolo Iddio' from Madama Butterfly. In some she is joined by tenor Roberto Alagna, with whom Gheorghiu has given countless acclaimed performances both on stage and on disc, including those of Puccini’s operas La Rondine, Tosca and La Bohème.
