Nelly Miricioiu
Romanian-born Soprano 

One of the most versatile artists of our day

  • 1982 - Covent Garden début as Nedda in I Pagliacci opposite John Vickers, Piero Cappuccili and Thomas Allen

  • 1986 - began a famous series of Vara Matinée Concerts at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw and over the next ten years continued to extend her repertoire to include the great belcanto heroines. In these roles she could advance her own unique artistry in the way for which she has today become so highly acclaimed.

Other highlights included three débuts, as Cio Cio San in Puccini's “Madame Butterfly” for Hamburg State Opera, Giordano's “Fedora” for Teatro Cólon Buenos Aires, and the title role in Rossini's “Semiramide” for the Geneva Opera  (also in a concert version at London's Queen Elizabeth Hall), Musetta/Mimi in “La Boheme” (L.Cavallo/Puccini) in a concert performance at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw
  • 1999 - returned to the Amsterdam Concertgebouw for Bellini's “Norma” which was later repeated in Eindhoven and also recently she debuted the same role onstage at the Teatro dell' Opera di Roma and in Athens
  • Most recently performed Tosca for the Cologne Opera, Bayerische Staatsoper-Munich, the Puccini Festival in Valencia, and the Netherlands Opera
  • December 1999 - débuted the role of Elvira in Verdi's “Ernani” in the Vara concert series at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw.
