The Daily Telegraph: ‘How can we claim opera isn’t political?’

Considering that Joyce DiDonato is one of the world’s most glamorous opera stars, I initially feel short‑changed by the petite figure who sits opposite me in an overly bright meeting room in the bowels of the Royal Opera House. It’s a crisp, cold day and she is hugging herself tightly in a white woollen polo neck, sharp-featured but unassuming. And then she opens her mouth, not to sing, alas, but to hold forth about the state of the world, her famous Kansas drawl only slightly softened by years of travelling.

‘Dead Man Walking’ / Teatro Real

“Joyce DiDonato is superb as Sister Helen Prejean … Even listening to DiDonato’s 2012 recording with Houston Grand Opera, it is the human drama that hooks us in. (Her latest album, Great Scott, also by Heggie and McNally, indicates her loyalty to their work.) Heggie writes generously, if traditionally, for the voice. Pouring her heart out at top volume, DiDonato sounded as if she could have gone on effortlessly for a good few hours more.”

Opera Now cover feature – “Great Joyce”

In the February 2018 edition of Opera Now, Joyce DiDonato discusses her starring role in Jake Heggie’s Great Scott, a new opera full of vocal pyrotechnics and chiaroscuro shifts in emotion that explore every aspect of her artistry. Download your copy at the following link!

Joyce DiDonato records Berlioz: Les Troyens – Adieu Fière Cité (Didon)


“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.”

My New Year’s Resolute Suggestions for Singers, et al …

So, that was 2016 … !  I’ve always loved looking back at a recently closed chapter in my life, analyzing it to learn what worked well (and what didn’t), appreciating it for what it was, and setting up my game plan for the next adventure.  While this past year has been an astonishing one for me in many ways, I have to ask: is anyone else out there happy to usher this particular 365-day cycle out the door?  I thought so.  So, that means THIS is the moment for us to decide HOW we want to open the door to the next cycle.  


There will always be more freedom to acquire and more truth to uncover.
