Joyce DiDonato named “Female Singer of the Year” by OPUS KLASSIK

Joyce DiDonato has been named “Female Singer of the Year” for her new album “Songplay” by OPUS KLASSIK. “Songplay” unites world-class musicians from the varied worlds of opera, jazz, and tango in the pure pleasure of improvisation, experimentation, and exchange. Together they create their own musical language, surprising listeners with timeless melodies transformed and universal stories retold over centuries; songs in English, in Italian and – naturally – in the universal language of music. For more information about the album and purchase links, click here.

The OPUS KLASSIK is the new prize for classical music in Germany. Last year, Joyce was awarded OPUS KLASSIK’s Operneinspielung des Jahres (Opera recording of the year) for her recording of Berlioz’s Les Troyens. This year, the official ceremony will take place for the second time at Konzerthaus Berlin on October 13 and will be broadcast on ZDF.

“This album holds a very special place in my heart and we had an absolute blast recording it. Huge thank you to OPUS KLASSIK for this honor and congratulations to all the other award recipients. I’m so proud to be a part of the classical music family which aims to bring beauty, truth, and reflection into the world.” – Joyce DiDonato

New production of ‘Agrippina’ at the Royal Opera House

Joyce DiDonato begins her 2019/20 season at the Royal Opera House starring in the title role of Handel’s Agrippina. Marking her first staged performance as the ultimate political operator, Agrippina, Joyce DiDonato made her debut in the role earlier this year on a European tour with Il Pomo d’Oro and conductor Maxim Emelyanychev. Joyce’s powerhouse performance garnered acclaim from audiences and critics:

“There probably isn’t a more technically accomplished mezzo than DiDonato currently on the planet. The voice is so completely solid: she can move between near-whispered pianissimo to Met-Opera-House-filling thunder at any point in her range or while shifting rapidly through it, at slow-breathed legato or quick fire coloratura, never losing the flow of a phrase. It’s impressive to listen to, but more impressive still is seeing the freedom that such technical confidence gives her to enjoy the theatricality of the role and react to her fellow singers.” (Bachtrack) More

Recital at the George Enescu Festival

For the recital, Joyce will sing arias and songs by Haydn, Mozart, Bellini, Luna, Rossini, Berlioz, and Hahn.

#Repost @royaloperahouse with @get_repost ・・・ Handel with care Not long now until Handel’s Agrippina opens on the Main Stage! Starring Joyce DiDonato in the title role, the opera is considered Handel's first operatic masterpiece. When it premiered in 1709 it proved an immediate success and an unprecedented series of 27 consecutive performances followed. This production is brought to life with characteristic invention by director Barrie Kosky. Agrippina opens on Monday - head to our website to book tickets now!

Day 4 of our 8-Days-In-A-Row Rehearsal Marathon to bring #Agrippina to London’s @royaloperahouse in all her glory? ✔️ No question: she is something else!!!! #absolutepowercorruptsabsolutely
