Angela Gheorghiu with the Canadian Opera Company Orchestra @ Roy Thomson Hall, Toronto

Roy Thomson Hall presents International Vocal Recitals

In the opera world, there are singers, and there are divas. Romanian born lyric-dramatic soprano Angela Gheorghiu is a true diva. She is gifted, glamorous and hailed as the greatest singing actress of our time. A mega-star at all the world’s great opera houses, she is known for her electrifying performances as Violetta and Tosca, and for her many award-winning recordings and live telecasts from La Scala and the Metropolitan Opera. We are understandably thrilled to present Ms. Gheorghiu’s long-awaited Toronto debut performance in a program of opera arias with full orchestral accompaniment by the Canadian Opera Company Orchestra conducted by Steven White.

This is Angela Gheorghiu’s Toronto debut.
