Opera:Past And PresentUniversally acclaimed for her luscious sound, beautifully constructed technique and exceptional theatrical stage presence, Michael Davidson wrote about her in an article in Opera Magazine: "The highly individual timbre of Miricioiu's voice, her imagination and intensity, her exceptional range and sense of timing make for a unique talent."

Hailed as a singing-actress and a leading exponent as an artiste and teacher in the world today of the bel canto repertoire, Nelly Miricioiu's talk will discuss the changing World of Opera from her Covent Garden debut in 1982 as Nedda in I Pagliacci opposite John Vickers, Piero Cappuccili and Thomas Allen, and her La Scala debut as Lucia di Lammermoor in 1983, and having left Romania for a new life in England, her experiences working in the major opera houses around the world including her more recent performances for the Royal Opera from 2000 to 2010.
