Welcome to Angela Gheorghiu's website

"The most glamorous and gifted opera singer of our time."

New York Sun

"She is one of the most sensuous Toscas imaginable … [her] passion and beauty are ideal for Tosca, as if the best qualities of Callas’ and Tebaldi portrayals had come together.”

Opera News

"... The most instantly recognisable and interesting soprano voice of our time, a liquid instrument of great lyrical beauty with gleaming "spun gold" high notes, but a dark, vibrant contralto range..."

The Sunday Times
