Maria Stuarda

“With not only voice but also personality to burn, DiDonato’s gorgeously sung, passionately acted Mary is the jewel in the crown of the show.” ~ Houston Chronicle

    Stunningly gorgeous! My favorite is the 6th, black and white one; what an amazing “ready to skin puppies” face 🙂 They are all filled with so much emotion, Donizetti’s music is playing in my head looking at these. Thank you!

    Dear Joyce

    He escuchado los fragmentos de María Stuarda,me han conmovido porque tu voz transforma la mágia de la música de Donizetti en auténticas gotas de un elixir portentoso que va directo a los más profundos sentimientos que puedan anidar en el corazón y lo distribuyen en el alma hasta hacer brotar lágrimas ante una interpretación maravillosa dulce,amarga,terrenal y sublime…Muchas gracias Joyce sigue tan magnífica como siempre,deseo tengas una carrera vocal muy larga y exitosa!

    All my best wishes to you!

    Beautiful pictures Joyce. Thank you for sharing them. In one of the pictures and in your write up about Stuarda, you refer to Bellini as the composer.

    I saw it in HD in New York, loved it very much. Incredible performances. Your are always wonderful.

    I saw both performances and felt the McVicar one was quite superior in terms of staging and pulling out the emotion in a more profound way. The costuming added significantly to it. But you were fabulous in both Joyce, though I felt you had really evolved the role by the time you performed it at the Met. Brava always! My favorite opera for sure.
