Rave reviews for Joyce's return to Romeo in San Francisco
Joyce DiDonato and Nicole Cabell are setting the operatic world on fire with their vocal splendor as Romeo and Giulietta on stage at the San Francisco Opera:
“Joyce DiDonato and soprano Nicole Cabell will astonish you as Romeo and Juliet” ~ Mercury News
” … their voices blending almost as magically as the fabled duo of Joan Sutherland and Marilyn Horne.” ~ SF Classical Voice
Joyce’s ardent portrayal as Romeo confirms her status as one of the great interpretors of this iconic role.
“DiDonato […] is her generation’s great exponent of pants roles, her masculine swagger and penetrating, slightly reedy voice making her a riveting figure on stage. She’s also one of the great living virtuosos in florid music; there seems to be nothing she can’t sing with utter ease and confidence. Her command and virtuosity made Romeo the most convincing character in the opera.” ~ The Classical Review
