The guest soloist at the the Wiener Opernball was just introduced as “Rumäniens Antwort auf Anna Netrebko, Angela Gheorghiu.” 

Oh, wait… apparently there is more to this story!

    Anna’s latest recording.

    Oedipe/Monty -- re Ange and Ceaucescu. The dictator died in 1989, and the album of opera arias by Verdi, Massenet, Catalani, Bellini, Puccini, Boito, Gounod and Donizetti, ending, oddly, with a song from a Romanian operetta, by Grigoriu, was recorded in 1995. But I was reporting gossip rather than an interview, as I mistakenly posted. I was told the “Ceaucescu’s favourite song” story by someone who worked on the record. But it may have been a joke, I suppose. Apologies.
