“Champagne and yes more champagne were needed to mark the 30th anniversary of the Circle of the Grand Theater of Geneva! Indeed, the performance of the American mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato would be breathtaking: sumptuousness of the timbre, sublime phrasing, vocally superlative and nevertheless without surprise, not preventing in any way a salutary relaxation, a simple and direct relation with the public, a generosity even in how to speak to us about the troubled times we are going through and the mistakes of humanity … a Diva yes, but committed.”
