Angela Gheorghiu is one of the most passionate and talented artists working in opera today, a larger-than-life figure whose intensity and drive, on stage and off, have commanded the attention of the opera world. This authorized biography of the internationally acclaimed soprano, largely composed of exclusive interviews with the artist, covers Gheorghiu's life and career from her childhood in Communist Romania to her spectacular Covent Garden debut in 1992 and up to the present day. In it, Gheorghiu shares new insights into the performance of many of her iconic stage roles and her collaborations with opera's leading lights. Also featured are commentaries and reminiscences by such celebrated figures in the music and art worlds as Grace Bumbry, Jose Carreras, Placido Domingo, Marilyn Horne, Bryn Terfel, and Franco Zeffirelli.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Gheorghiu doesn't disappoint with her story of becoming a world-class opera star."-- "Publishers Weekly"
"There will doubtless be subsequent books on Gheorghiu, without her involvement or imprimatur. Until then, this provides a lot of worthwhile material. straight from the diva's mouth."-- "Opera"
