Irina Lungu, a name to remember

The Moldavian soprano recently starred in Luisa Miller and La Traviata, both in Parma for the 2007 Verdi Festival. YouTube extracts of Luisa Miller and La Traviata (both extracts of Loggione). She also made a name for herself at La Scala and Rome last Spring and Summer when she filled in for Angela Gheorghiu. She really reminds me of her, not only physically, but also in her voice, though she needs to work on her breath. Bio here, schedule here.
