The Romanian diva has given an interview to Opéra magazine in which she talks fondly, for once, about her ex-husband and asks him to get in touch. There are some specific recordings she wants to make with him.

‘I knew that blessed time when records were still selling and I could leave a trace of myself, my roles, on audio and video,’ she says. She goes on to say: ‘I’m not done yet.’

Read extract here.

Alagna is now married to the Polish soprano, Alexandra Kurzak.


  • Stephen says:

    Despite what she says about her plans with Solti, she in fact broke with him after refusing to do a portamento in one of Desdemona’s arias for a Verdi aria recording.

  • Julie says:

    Gheorghiu does not say that in the article from Opera Magazine. Not at all..
    She only acknowledges that she made great recordings with Alagna in the past!

    • Thomasina says:

      Yes. Rien de scandaleux. Rather the respectful tone and a little nostalgic. To know more, we have to buy a Opéra magazine…?

  • HENDRICK says:

    They made good things during their cooperation era, since they had both started their own affection and new life, why couldn’t they collaborated again, just in singing?
