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

    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.
