Chi bel sogno di Gheorgiu

Today we have an embarassing video of Angela Gheorghiu performing Carmen's Habanera with Maria Callas. From the beginning of her career Gheorghiu has been compared to Callas but she has never taken the risks, or pushed herself vocally or theatrically the way Callas did. The rise of more versatile and varied singers have made her star fall. And now it seems that Gheorghiu who is still a great singing actress is attempting to bank on her early comparisons to Maria Callas comparisons to revitalize her stature as the leading Diva.  LITERALLY!
