Classical vocalist Veronica Bell challenges traditions in her new crossover album Midnight Affairs.

" I know it's crazy to put the Tchaikovsky's aria and Gardel's tango practically next to each other but... I believe that music is a reflection of our souls where everything is mixed together; why should a record be any different?" - Veronica Bell 

Operatically trained, Russian-American soprano Veronica Bell is not afraid of raising a few eyebrows. She proudly wears the title Antichrist of Opera given to her for recording Va Pensiero chorus from Verdi's Nabucco as a solo piece accompanied by ... yes, a metal band. In her new album she takes full advantage of the wide-open field of classical crossover genre. Not only she transforms solo arias into duets and trios and instrumental music into vocal, she also combines separately written pieces into one and re-works orchestrations to fit her vision.  She has a full three-octave range and a big personality, and she is not afraid to use either. Everything she creates exudes passion, and it's contagious and convincing.
