Dedicated to the work and career of one of the worlds greatest operatic divas
Hailed as a singing-actress, Nelly is one of the most versatile
artists of our day.
Her repertoire extends from Mozart and bel canto to Verdi, Puccini and the
verismo to modern italian opera Respighi and Zandonai,
taking in French and Russian composers too. As Rodney
Milnes wrote in Opera Magazine
"this extraordinary diva can sing anything and sing it well ".
Since her Covent Garden debut in 1982 as Nedda in I Pagliacci
opposite John Vickers, Piero Cappuccili and Thomas Allen and the 1983
triumphant La Scala debut as Lucia di Lammermoor, Nelly has been heard
in all major opera houses of the world.
She has worked with some of the most prestigious conductors and directors
(in leading roles that include Tosca with Jose Carreras,
Jose Cura, Neil Schicoff), Mimi (with Placido Domingo), Violetta in La Traviata
(with Franco Bonisolli, Roberto Alagna, Renato Bruson, Alfredo Kraus) and opposite many other leading artists of the day.
It was the bel canto repertoire and her dedication to rediscovering forgotten operas where Nelly found her niche. Universally acclaimed for her luscious sound, beautifully constructed technique and exceptional theatrical stage presence, Michael Davidson wrote about her in an article in Opera Magazine: "The highly individual timbre of Miricioiu’s voice, her imagination and intensity, her exceptional range and sense of timing make for a unique talent.
