On Sunday, May 30th, from 6:30PM the Bucharest National Opera House stages the Elena Moșuc 30 Anniversary Gala, a unique event aiming to celebrate 30 years of artistic activity of the famous soprano. Maestro Daniel Jinga will stand at the conducting desk. The soloists of the Bucharest National Opera House will get on stage alongside Elena Moșuc: Oana Andra, Daniel Magdal, Lucian Petrean and Alin Stoica. The directorial concept bears Alexandru Nagy's signature. A special guest, with the participation of the Bucharest National Opera House Orchestra. The event is dedicated to the Day of Romanians Abroad, celebrated this year on the 30th of May.

As an important international promoter of the values of lyrical art, the Romanian-Swiss soprano Elena Moșuc was invited to perform not only all over Europe, on the world's greatest stages (at the Scala Theatre in Milan, Vienna, Covent Garden Opera in London, the Bastille, Opéra Comique, Palais Garnier and Champs-Elysées Theatres in Paris, Rome, Turin, Venice, Palermo, München, Berlin, Hamburg, Bucharest, Barcelona, Bilbao, Tel Aviv etc.) and at well-known festivals (Salzburg, the Verona Arena, Savonlinna in Finland, Torre del Lago in Italy), but also in the USA (New York Metropolitan Opera and Dallas), in Muscat, Japan, China, Taiwan and Korea.

Being recognized as one of the most gifted and passionate sopranos of the modern era, Elena Moșuc collaborated with distinguished conductors such as Sir Colin Davis, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Christoph von Dohnanyi, Fabio Luisi, Nello Santi, Bruno Campanella, Maurizio Arena, Carlo Franci, Lorin Maazel, Marcello Viotti, Gustavo Dudamel, Philipp Jordan, Evelino Pido, Jordi Bernàcer, Valéry Gergiev and with renowned directors such as Franco Zeffirelli, Liliana Cavani, Ruth Berghaus, Sven-Eric Bechtolf, Stefan Herheim, Mario Martone, Gilbert Deflo, Renata Scotto, David McVicar, Lorenzo Mariani, Graham Vick, Davide Livermore, Martin Kusej etc.

Her recent achievements include some excellent debuts that enriched her repertoire, such as Norma (Zürich, Lyon, Paris, the Savonlinna Festival), Marguerite (Faust) in Zürich, Hamburg and Budapest, Liù (Turandot) in Zürich and at The Puccini Festival in Torre del Lago, Mimi (Zürich, Bucharest), Medora (Il Corsaro) in Zürich and Duisburg, Nedda (Pagliacci), Alice Ford (Falstaff), Luisa Miller, (Zürich, Naples, La Scala in Milan), Lucrezia Borgia, Maria Stuarda (Zürich and Berlin), Anna Bolena (concertante in Vienna), Semiramide (Lyon, Paris) and Magda (La Rondine) in München. Her debut as Violetta Valéry in La Traviata at the Scala Theatre in Milan under the baton of grand maestro Lorin Maazel deserves a special mention, followed by Gilda (Rigoletto), the new production by Luisa Miller in which Elena had an extraordinary personal success, Micaela in Carmen and Lucia di Lamermoor. We must add her last accomplishments with Zerbinetta (Ariadne auf Naxos) in Zürich, the Salzburg Festival and Bastille in Paris, Lucia di Lammermoor in Barcelona, Palermo, Turin, Las Palma and Menorca, Lucrezia Borgia in Brüxelles and ABAO Bilbao, La Traviata in Malta and Athens. In 2017, the climaxes of her appearances on the international lyrical stages were Maria Stuarda in Genoa, a show that is considered to be one of the best in Europe in 2017, and her thrilling success with the difficult character of Anna Bolena in Lisbon and Desdemona in Tokyo. In 2019 she succeeded with her parts as Lakmé at the Royal Opera House in Muscat and Giselda (I Lombardi) at the Cluj-Napoca Hungarian Opera.
