Jessica Duchen honors Opera Chic with our second mention in The Independent in less than six months:
So, first we get quoted in a Katherine Jenkins profile (by restaurant critic John Walsh); then in an Angela Gheorghiu profile.
It's kinda downhill from here now is it?
PS In the Independent piece Angela accuses her haters of being uninformed re: famous Romanians who are not Dracula; Opera Chic denies this. Actually, her favorite Romanian isn't Dracula, it's Dinu Lipatti. Paul Celan is a close second. EM Cioran comes in third. Then it's Elie Wiesel, Mircea Eliade, film director Cristi Puiu and Internazionale FC defender Cristian Chivu. Then it's Dracula. Then there's that sweet server at one of our favorite pizza joints here in Milan.
Angela Gheorghiu is Opera Chic's tenth-favorite Romanian, actually.
(In the photo above, Inva Mula. She's not Gheorghiu, she's not Romanian -- she's from Albania -- but she's a really, really impressive Violetta. And she shows up on time).
