“Joyce sings, and the world is suddenly brighter,” composer Jake Heggie has said.
And indeed, Grammy Award–winning opera star Joyce DiDonato can do it all, dazzling audiences from the Metropolitan Opera and La Scala to fans at Game 7 of the 2014 World Series and becoming one of the most beloved singers of her generation.
DiDonato is joined by the acclaimed period instrument ensemble the English Concert for a concert performance of Handel’s tale of obsession and betrayal, Ariodante.
The New York Times deemed a similar Carnegie Hall performance one of the “Ten Best Classical Music Events of 2014,” remarking, “The English Concert ... presented an elegant, dramatically riveting concert performance with a splendid cast headed by the superb mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato.”
