‘Joyce DiDonato Unforgettable In Buenos Aires’

“Joyce DiDonato’s concerts for Mozarteum Argentino are becoming something of a tradition, taking place every other year with the latest the third.

Comparing the programmes for these there are in each the ‘core’ pieces from Handel and Rossini – two composers for which she has become especially well known on the opera stage … In contrast this latest pair of concerts had a somewhat more ‘modern’ feel, from the zarzuela of Pablo Luna to impressionist Ravel, showing yet another facet of the voice and talent of this wonderful singer.

“Joyce DiDonato: the lady of opera in Lima”

“It was then time for the exciting rondo Tanti affetti in such a moment, from the opera La Donna del Lago. “Pyrotechnics” – vocal coloratura, breath control, modulation … in short, all the virtuosity of Joyce DiDonato in an extraordinary conclusion …

She left all attendees marveled by this recital. Both Joyce DiDonato as Craig Terry conquered the Lima public and proved perfect allies in this unforgettable musical evening … Thanks to both Joyce DiDonato and Craig Terry. We hope they return soon … and if they do, also, for a full opera, much better!”

“As expected, DiDonato has virtuosity to spare, but what makes this disc special is the shimmering radiance of emotion she brings to operas such as Bellini’s Adelson e Salvini and Pacini’s Saffo. In Mary Stuart’s radiantly sung solo before her execution DiDonato leaves no doubt that her own star is at its height.”

Dedicating Romeo

Tonight is the opening of “I Capuleti e i Montecchi” here in Zurich. It is a role that I feel and love very deeply, and the opportunity to bring him to life, set to Bellini’s exquisitely well crafted vocal lines, fills me with tremendous gratitude. (I’ve written about my passion for him before.)

It tells the familiar story of Romeo and Juliet: the story we know well, masterfully told by Shakespeare, read aloud in countless sophomore literature classes, endlessly danced to (by yours truly, at least) in Bernstein’s version, retold and remade in numerous cultures and epochs – always breaking our hearts in the end.

Bellini’s version hails from later Italian sources, and as the title indicates, throws the emphasis squarely on the shoulders of these two warring families. This is undeniably an opera about war. Here there is no love duet between the two: they fight in every scene, even in death, never finding peace – even as harmonious thirds in the music ache for them to find each other. After the deaths, the warring families rush the stage and we see how the cycle will inevitably continue.

Why is this on my mind today?

Charleston.

Guns.

Racism.

Inequality.

War.
