Movie Reviews

Bravo!
Aeschylus | Alexandria VA | 12/28/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It's only been a few months since I've gotten into opera, so this review is more in layman terms and may be rather simplistic. From a beginners perspective, you can't go wrong with Gheorghiu as her voice is very beautiful, smooth, and full of clarity, which is all translated onto this DVD with her wonderful performance. On the second viewing, I was going to work on my computer while it played in the background. I ended up completely ignoring my work and watched her sing again. You can tell by her facial expressions that she really gets into the feeling of the arias. Highly recommended."
Gheorghiu se consolida como una de las divas del momento
Annio mozartiano ;) | Espaņa | 10/23/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"En este breve (56 minutos) pero sustancioso recital (grabado en Junio de 2001 en el Covent Garden londinense), la soprano rumana ANGELA GHEORGHIU se confirma como una de las grandes divas del panorama actual. Con una presencia escenica y una elegancia de una sola pieza, Gheorghiu irrumpe en el escenario del Covent Garden con paso firme, y en todo momento su saber estar es un deleite para la vista. ¡Que clase! En lo vocal (una vez mas) saca a relucir toda sus armas al maximo nivel: la belleza de la voz, la buena tecnica, el gusto, la expresividad...Todo esta perfecto en un programa que toca los estilos mas diversos (Haendel, Mozart, Massenet, Charpentier, Puccini, Cilea, Bellini y hasta el musical con Loewe). En cada intervencion, la Gheorghiu rezuma perfeccion por los cuatro costados. La orquesta del Covent Garden (dirigida por ION MARIN, que asume su papel de secundario ante la presencia de la diva acompañando con mucha calidad) suena divinamente y el exito es clamoroso. Un espectaculo digno de contemplar una y mil veces.
Son de agradecer los extras: una entrevista con Gheorghiu, una galeria fotografica de la diva y un video promocional con el aria 'Casta Diva' (que tambien aparece en el recital) con una Gheorghiu glamourosisima haciendo playback.
Un bello documento todo el para disfrutar muchas veces y disfrutar con el arte de la que es, sin la menor duda, una de las cantantes con mas clase y estilo de nuestros dias."
La Traviata

"Reaally enjoyed this production of La Traviata with Angela Gheorghiu. She is so good. And when she opens her full voice I think of the great Renata Tabaldi. The set,color and sound is also great. Anyone who buys it will not be disappointed. Also purchased Angela at Covent gardens and loved that one too. Mario C."
