‘Why George Frideric Handel Still Matters’

Joyce released her (FURORE) CD in January.

“I have learned more artistically, and even as a human being, I’ve learned more from performing Handel’s music, probably more than any other composer,” DiDonato says. Her new recording focuses on arias from operas and oratorios where Handel’s characters experience flights of fury and tragedy. “As advanced as we like to think we are, we still succumb to jealousy, rage and euphoria, We’re humans, and I think we have so much to learn by having the chance to explore these vivid, amazing characters. I think there’s a truth in this music, and that’s why it still speaks to us.”  – by Tom Huizenga

“Grazie, London.” Thanks for the wicked, wonderful memories!!! #Agrippina

What an indescribable joy it has been to bring the many faces of #Agrippina to life here at the @royaloperahouse with such an extraordinary cast, crew, and team-at-large for such fantastic audiences! I’ve been well aware from the first day that this was an instance of “as good as it gets”. Luckily, I get to spend a lot of time with this powerhouse this season ... so while it’s “goodbye” for now, I shall return to the quest for the throne shortly! 😎 PS As if we needed reminding: #absolutepowercorruptsabsolutely Photo: Bill Cooper / ROH

What a gift to sing Handel’s #Agrippina for the @royaloperahouse and you gorgeous #London Public!! I’m already sad to think we only have 4 more performances left! #catchusifyoucan #absolutepowercorruptsabsolutely Thank you, Marcin, for this lovely souvenir of the curtain call 😎

After the intensive and wonderful journey to get #Agrippina up on her feet, full of her manipulative and cruel machinations, what a joy to return to #nature in all Her restorative, healing, “real world” glory. Aaaaahhhhhhh......
