Joyce DiDonato

Joyce DiDonato has assumed her own regal status among today's mezzo-sopranos for her musical brilliance, stage presence and personality. In this stunning programme of baroque opera arias, she dons the crowns of famous queens and other royal heroines. Powerful, troubled, assertive and vulnerable, these are character portraits by some of the greatest composers in history including Monteverdi, Handel, Vivaldi and Gluck.

Partnered by violinist, Dmitry Sinkovsky, and stylish, baroque specialists Il Pomo d'Oro, the multi award-winning Joyce DiDonato brings a rare intensity, warmth and sense of drama to this fascinating repertoire.

One recital only. Don't miss this extravagant event featuring "not only a great, brave and inspiring artist, but also a transformative presence in the arts" (Gramophone).
