Bid to help!


In order to support this noble cause, Angela donated two items (the brooch worn at her international debut as Charlotte in Werther at the Vienna State Opera and signed CD) for the benefit of children and adults with incurable illnesses cared for by HOSPICE Casa Sperantei. The  online Benefit Auction for Hospice Casa Sperantei ends in about 4 days. Want to help? Place the bid!
The auction starts at 100 euro, items can be shipped worldwide.


"The auction is about investing in things you love and there's nothing we love more than our family and friends. Today we urge you to invest in people you don't know, but people no less loved and equally cherished. All the proceeds from the charity lots will support the opening of the new bed unit in the Bucharest HOSPICE Centre so that the hospice patients can receive care and relief alongside their dear ones."

Anniversary box, available for purchase at Arcadia Opera Shop in Vienna


The Warner Classics Autograph Anniversary box (8 CDs plus 1 DVD) is available for buying at the Arcadia Opera Shop, located at the State Opera House in Vienna.
Considering that the release date is April 6, the nice surprise of being able to buy it one month in advance may be related to Angela's presence in Vienna. Maybe an event (aka signing session) will be organized in the near future? We'll see.

If you're in Vienna, go buy the box. It's worth millions!
