The great soprano has confirmed the new man in her life in an interview on Romanian TV channel. For the past year, she said, she has been involved with Cezar Ouatu, a counternor who sang their country’s recent entry at the Eurovision contest.
Apparently, Ms Gheorghiu backed him for the role. Mr Ouatu, 33, did not win (he came 13th), but he will doubtless do very well elsewhere. He has appeared on the cover of Opernglas magazine and released a pop single.
Last night, the couple sang together at an Andrea Bocelli concert in Bucharest. Slipped Disc wishes them every happiness.
Ms Georghiu was divorced earlier this year from Roberto Alagna, whose social life has been reported elsewhere on this site.
