“Hear this Naples — it’s to die for”

Critics are sharing their enthusiastic responses to Joyce DiDonato’s latest album on the Warner Classics label, Stella di Napoli (Star of Naples). This recording highlights the music of several Italian composers including Bellini, Rossini, Donizetti, and Pacini, as well as lesser-known arias by Mercadante, Carafa, and Pacini. Joyce worked in close collaboration with Italian conductor Riccardo Minasi to bring this exciting project to life, with many of the arias featured as new editions and world premiere recordings. More

“Non piu mesta” from the Metropolitan Opera

“Da torbida procella” from the Liceu


“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.”

The Juilliard School’s 109th Commencement Speech ~ Joyce DiDonato

Chairman Kovner, President Polisi, most distinguished honorees, dedicated family, friends, faculty, and to EACH of the talented, ambitious, courageous, adventurous Juilliard graduates of the class of 2014 before us here today, thank you!


Bring that innocent, childlike sense of wonder to your craft, and do whatever you need to find that truth again. It will continually teach you how to be present, how to be alive, and how to let go. Therein lies not only your artistic freedom, but your personal freedom as well!

~ Joyce DiDonato
