Fusing music, movement and theatre, EDEN is a breathtaking, through-performed tour de force from the multi-award-winning Joyce DiDonato that’s been immediately celebrated as “iconic” and “ground-breaking.”

By traveling seamlessly through four centuries of music — including a new commission from Academy-Award winning composer Rachel Portman — a searing and singular experience of hope and connection unfolds.

Joyce invites you to join her in an evening celebrating the majesty, might, and mystery of Nature through the transformative power of music. In her wide-ranging personally curated program, DiDonato invites us to return to our roots and to explore whether or not we are connecting as profoundly as we might to the pure essence of our being, to create a new EDEN from within and plant seeds of hope for the future.

DiDonato is joined by her long-standing, celebrated musical partners, Il Pomo d’Oro, and conductor Maxim Emelyanychev.

To ensure that the EDEN experience continues to grow outside of the concert hall, each audience member receives seeds to plant as Joyce asks: “In this time of upheaval, which seed will you plant today?”
