Sapa yang tau sapakah gerangannya Inva Mulla Tchako ni???Aku pun xtau...baru mo kurik info la ni hehehe...jom baca info yang aku dapat dari Mr. Googly Woogly through Wikipedia mengenai diva soprano ni...jom baca!!!

Inva Mula (born 1963) is an Albanian opera soprano. She comes from an artistic family. She began her soprano career at a very early age. Her father, Avni Mula, is a famous Albanian singer and composer, born in Gjakova, a city in Kosovo. Her first name, Inva, is formed from taking her father's name, Avni, and reading it backwards.

Life & Career

Inva was born in Tirana, Albania in 1963. In 1987 she won the Cantante d'Albania competition in Tirana and in 1988 the George EnescuCompetition in Bucharest. In 1992 she won the Butterfly Competition in Barcelona. She received an award at Plácido Domingo's first Operalia International Opera Competition contest in Paris, 1993. A CD of the event was released.

She later performed in various concerts with the famous tenor at the Opéra Bastille in Paris, and in Brussels for Europalia Mexico, in Munich, and in Oslo. In 1996 she performed Luigi Cherubini's opera Médée (which was taped for TV) at Compiègne in France. She then returned forGeorges Bizet's opera La Jolie fille de Perth (released CD, filmed for TV, and released DVD in Japan) in 1998. After this she recordedPuccini's La Rondine with Angela Gheorghiu for EMI and for 2005's stage production she took Gheorghiu's place in the leading role of Magda during performances in Toulouse and Paris. In 1997 she performed in a movie called The Fifth Element, where she played as Diva Plavalaguna (singing voice). Later on, she performed Bizet's Ivan IV concert version, which had its recital debut at Salle Pleyel in Paris, and a live recording was released as CD. In 2001, she was busy in Italy, performing Verdi's Falstaff at the Teatro alla Scala and Rigoletto at theVerona Arena, both of which were taped for TV then released on DVD.

Mula is a regular performer at La Scala, where she has sung in Lucia di Lammermoor, La bohème, and Manon, among others. She is also a renowned Violetta in La Traviata, and has sung the role in many cities around the world, including Tokyo, Bilbao, Orange, Trieste, andToronto. In 2007, she performed Adina in L'elisir d'amore at Toulouse.

Her ex-husband Pirro Çako is a well-known singer and composer from Albania, so she used the spelling Tchako rather than Çako. However, after mid-1990 she began using the name Inva Mula, and never returned to the old one.

Brief Incursion In The Film Industry

Mula is perhaps best-known to Western filmgoers as the voice behind the Diva Plavalaguna (the very tall, blue alien performer) in the film The Fifth Element, where she is credited as Inva Mulla Tchako. In the film (released in 1997) she performed the aria "Oh, giusto cielo!...Il dolce suono" (the mad scene) from Gaetano Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor, and "The Diva dance" song.

Director Luc Besson adored Maria Callas, but her 1950s EMI Classics recording of "Lucia" wasn't clear enough to use on a film soundtrack, so Callas's agent Michel Glotz, who had produced this recording, introduced him to Mula.

Lucia di Lammermoor Lyrics

Mi colpi di sua voce!...
Ah, quella voce
M'e qui nel cor discesa!...
Edgardo! lo ti son reas;
Edgardo! Ah! Edgardo mio!
Si, ti son resa!
Fuggita io son da' tuoi nemici...
Un gelo mi serpeggia nel sen!...
Trema ogni fibra!...
Vacilla it pie!...
Presso la fonte meco t'assidi alquanto...
Si, presso la fonte meco t'assidi...

English Translation

The sweet sound, hits me, his voice!
Ah, that voice into my heart decends!
Edgardo, I surrender to you
A chill creeps into my breast!
Trembles every fiber!
Falters my foot!
Near the fountain next to me sit a while!
Yes, near the fountain next to me...
