‘Semiramide’ at the Royal Opera House

This season, Rossini’s powerful and poignant Semiramide will be seen on the Royal Opera House stage for the first time, with Joyce DiDonato in the title role. With performances from November 19 through December 16, London audiences will have the opportunity to see Ms. DiDonato’s unforgettable portrayal of the tragically fated ruler, which she debuted last season at the Bayerische Staatsoper to great acclaim:

“Her vocal performance was brilliant, marked by a wonderful legato and sparkling coloratura – every asset of a true bel canto artist.” (Bachtrack)

“DiDonato provides the sparks” in new ‘Norma’ at The Met

“Her partner for many of those duets was Joyce DiDonato, whose performance as the romantic rival Adalgisa provided yet more evidence–as if we needed any–of her status as a supreme bel canto stylist. Her technique as firm as bedrock, she built a gripping character on her fiery vocal interpretation. Her confession to Norma in the Act I duet “Sola, furtiva al tempio” showed palpable sorrow, and a special urgency, as she sang every word as though it were the most important in the libretto.”

Eric C. Simpson, New York Classical Review

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.”

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.
