Drama Queens tour in Asia

Joyce brings the thrilling programme from her award-winning album Drama Queens on tour this spring, her first throughout the Asian continent. She has previously toured the program across the United States, in New York City, San Francisco, and Kansas City, as well as several European appearances, including London, Paris, Barcelona, Madrid, and Brussels.

Ms. DiDonato will be accompanied by the illustrious period ensemble Il pomo d’oro, led by Music Director and violinist Dmitry Sinkovsky. The first performance takes place at the dazzling Royal House Muscat in Oman, on May 1. They continue on to Singapore’s Esplande Concert Hall on May 4, Hong Kong’s HK Cultural Centre Concert Hall on May 6, the Grand Theatre in Shanghai on May 8, and Beijing’s Concert Hall of NCPA on May 10. The spectacular program features vocal works by several of the 17th and 18th century’s best-known composers, including Handel, Monteverdi, and Gluck, as well as orchestral pieces by Scarlatti and Vivaldi.

See what the critics had to say about Joyce’s previous Drama Queens performances!

“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.

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!

“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!

We need you to make us feel an integral PART of a shared existence through the communal, universal, forgiving language of music, of dance, of poetry and Art – so that we never lose sight of the fact that we are all in this together and that we are all deserving of a life that overflows with immense possibility, improbable beauty and relentless truth.
