Contemporary opera composer Jake Heggie enthused in Gramophone magazine, “The staggering, joyful artistry of Joyce DiDonato reminds us that in any generation there are a few giants…Those who know her repertoire are in awe of her gifts, and those who know nothing of it are instantly engaged…Joyce sings, and the world is suddenly brighter.”

DiDonato enchants audiences across the globe with her 24-carat voice and performances that “leave one bereft of superlatives.” (Telegraph) First among equals in a spectacular cast, DiDonato sparkles in this brilliantly melodic tale of obsession and betrayal, which will be performed in concert with conductor Harry Bicket and The English Concert in only three places in the country: Hill Auditorium, Carnegie Hall, and the Kennedy Center.

Performed in Italian with English supertitles.

Please note: The artists have requested to perform this work with no late seating break. Late-comers will not be seated until the first intermission, which occurs approximately 1 hour into the performance. Because we anticipate that arriving late and missing an hour of the performance may be very disappointing, we are making extra efforts to ensure our audience for this event is aware of the policy.
