Coming across this video today, I thought: “Please please please don’t!”. I love Angela Gheorghiu and it is undeniable that she is one of the most influential sopranos of her generation. I also like her outdated Diva personality and her being a perfect gay opera lover (melomane as we say in Italian) icon. Said this, I’ll be boring. I wasn’t sure wether this was a bit of camp fun or simply delirium of a Diva, but I am now inclined towards the second one and I think this is simply another, probably a bit desperate, tacky commercial operation feeding off her vanity.
