Grammy® Nomination for “Drama Queens”

For the 56th Annual Grammy Awards, Joyce has been nominated for Best Classical Vocal Solo, for her performance on “Drama Queens”, with Alan Curtis and Il Complesso Barocco. This is her fourth Grammy nomination. 


“Drama Queens” is  an electrifying program of royal arias the 17th and 18th centuries, composed by figures as famous as Handel and Vivaldi and as little known as Orlandini and Porta. Innovative as ever, DiDonato presents a new themed recital: Drama Queens sees DiDonato portraying a parade of royal personages in a diversity of challenging situations and extreme states of mind.

“For me, this is my most exciting recording project to date, ” says Joyce DiDonato, “because it is everything I deeply adore about the world of opera. high drama, profound emotion, fearless vocal writing, time-stopping passages, historical significance and real discovery. What more could I ask for?”

The world needs you. Now, the world may not exactly realize it, but wow, does it need you. It is yearning, starving, dying for you and your healing offer of service through your Art.
