So then who is Angela Gheorghiu?

Burns said...

Actually, Lucine Amara is the lesbian Lucine Amara. But yes, we can agree she and Racette have a similar spinto-à-tout-faire status and the same uncomplicated sound.

Adelina Patti was the Italian M. Sissieretta Jones.

Maury D'annato said...

Better yet, the Italian-Spanish-French-American-Welsh M. Sissieretta Jones.

Oberon: I'm going to take a stab at this one and say Gheorghiu is the non-dead Virginia Zeani. Or the undead Virginia Zeani. Now watch, Virginia Zeani is going to turn up all alive and stuff just to prove me wrong.

I think Zeani is actually still alive and also lively. Gheorghiu probably wouldn't approve, but I think she's sort of the Anna Moffo of the Balkans. Or the Carpathians. It's really up to her.

Gheorghiu is the ASPIRING Moffo of the Balkans
Netrebko is the aspiring Gheorghiu of the former Soviet Union

Virginia Zeani is alive and well and lives in the USA.
She has recently met up with Angela Gheorghiu, who was certainly influenced by her, and they have become great friends. Gheorghiu might one day become the new Zeani... but not quite yet.

Oda Slobodskaya was Chaliapin's Callas. Vishnevskaya was not the new Oda Slobodskaya, nor was Boris Christoff.
