Acclaimed soprano Gheorghiu to sing in guide of Met performers
Romanian soprano Angela Gheorghiu has declared she will loan her voice to help the performers of New York’s Metropolitan Opera (Met), denied of their compensation in view of infection related abrogations of their shows.
“On February 21, through the marvels of innovation, I will perform for you Dvorak’s ‘Melody to the Moon’ and Anton Pann’s ‘Tatal Nostru’ (Our Father) in a unique course of action by (arranger) Andrei Tudor,” she composed on Facebook late yesterday.
Thought about one of the world’s most prominent show artists, Gheorghiu, 55, will act in Bucharest close by piano player Alexandru Petrovici, to the backup of the Met Orchestra from New York.
Tickets for the presentation, which can be watched on the web, have gone at a bargain for US$15 (RM60).
Gheorghiu said the returns would “advantage more than 150 Met performers out of luck”.
In a meeting with the Romanian channel Digi24, Gheorghiu said that the artists “had not gotten their pay rates for a year and were in an extremely troublesome circumstance”.
The soprano dismissed the expression “noble cause show”, focusing on that she felt a “human and expert need” to help the reason.
“A craftsman is significant just close by one’s imaginative family,” she said. “Without an ensemble or ensemble we can’t do anything.”
Gheorghiu will perform for the presentation in Bucharest’s rich Athenaeum show lobby, worked by the French planner Albert Galleron and introduced in 1888.
“This is my house of God,” Gheorghiu said of the scene, reviewing that she gave her first presentation there at 17 years old.
The Met’s head supervisor Peter Gelb told AFP in September that his foundation was experiencing “the most troublesome period” in 137 years of presence.
The most recent two months of the 2019-20 season and the entire of the accompanying one have been dropped, which is relied upon to bring about a deficiency of US$154 million.
