“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.”
