About Angela Gheorghiu

With an instantly recognizable voice and a true diva image, Angela Gheorghiu is one of the world's best-known opera stars. Her specialties lie in mainstream Italian and French roles. Gheorghiu made her debut in Britain at the Royal Opera House at Covent Garden in 1992. Her debut at New York's Metropolitan Opera came in 1993 as Mimi in La bohème. Gheorghiu was signed to the Decca label and was heard there on a 1995 recording of Verdi's La Traviata. A significant contributor to Gheorghiu's success was her marriage to tenor Roberto Alagna, which marked the pair as opera's premier power couple. The two often performed together. Gheorghiu's recorded output has mostly been restricted to opera, although she did issue a song recital, Plaisir d'amour, in 2019. In 2024, she released A Te, Puccini, her first album in several years. By then, her recording catalog comprised well over 50 items.
