Role debut as Charlotte in ‘Werther’ at the Royal Opera

Next season, Joyce makes her highly anticipated role debut as Charlotte in Massenet’s romantic tragedy Werther at the Royal Opera House. Ms. DiDonato stars alongside tenor Vittorio Grigolo in the title role, with the Royal Opera’s Music Director Sir Antonio Pappano leading the orchestra and chorus. This will be a reunion for Ms. DiDonato and Mr. Pappano in London, following their thrilling recital last year at Wigmore Hall.

Performances take place June 19, 24 & 27 and July 3, 6 & 13, with the June 27 performance receiving a live broadcast into cinemas worldwide.

Stella di Napoli wins 2015 BBC Music Magazine Award

Joyce DiDonato’s latest release on the Warner Classics/Erato label, Stella di Napoli, has been honored with a 2015 BBC Music Magazine Vocal Award. Joyce shared the following message with her fans on Facebook in response to this spectacular win:

“An enormous thank you to BBC Music Magazine for this beautiful honor. This is one that is particularly meaningful to me since it is voted on by you, the fans. Not to sound like a broken record, but I’m unspeakably grateful for the opportunity to sing for you all, and particularly in the case of this album, to bring “new” music into your lives. Thank you for listening and sharing!!!”

The awards were presented at the BBC Music Magazine’s 10th annual ceremony, held at King’s Palace in London. Congrats to all of this year’s winners!

European Tour with Alan Gilbert and the New York Philharmonic

Joyce joins forces with the New York Philharmonic and Music Director Alan Gilbert for a whirlwind European tour, beginning with a performance at the National Concert Hall in Dublin on April 16, followed by a concert at The Barbican in London on April 17. The program includes Ravel’s Shéhérazade and the UK premiere of Salonen’s Nyx, and is a highlight of Joyce’s Artist Spotlight series at the venue, which also included a wildly successful performance of selections from her album Stella di Napoli in September and a spectacular concert setting of Handel’s Alcina in October. The tour continues with concerts at the famed Concertgebow in Amsterdam on April 21, the Philharmonie Luxembourg on April 23, and the Philharmonie de Paris on April 25. The performance at the Philharmonie on the 25th will also receive a live broadcast via Medici.tv.

While in London, she will also reunite with the Brentano String Quartet on April 14 at The Barbican, to reprise the stunning program from their Carnegie Hall performance earlier this season, which will include the European premiere of Jake Heggie’s Camille Claudel: Into the Fire. Ticket availability is extremely limited for this special event, which also includes a post-show Q&A session with Ms. DiDonato and Mr. Heggie.

Recordings

“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.”

Free Form “Wisdom”

During the flurry of my insanely bizarre and wonderful fall schedule, I received a request from the Mu Phi Chapter at Radford University in Virginia, asking for some words of encouragement. As a proud Mu Phi Alum, it took me a few weeks to respond, but I managed to get a few thoughts down onto “paper” while speeding across Europe on a high speed train. It’s not my most eloquent writing, but it captured that particular moment in time where my brain was buzzing with the desire to impart some, eh hem, wisdom, words of encouragement, and perhaps even so much as empowering them to get fierce about their paths!

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.
