In War & Peace – European Tour

Joyce DiDonato, Il Pomo d’Oro, and conductor Maxim Emelyanychev reunite this spring for additional performances in Europe promoting “In War and Peace,” Ms. DiDonato’s critically lauded album release on Warner Classics/Erato. Visit InWarandPeace.com for a complete list of tour dates, media features, and other information.

Tour Dates:

May 24 – Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris

May 27 – Philharmonie Essen

May 30 – Philharmonie Berlin

June 2 – Teatro Real in Madrid

June 4 – Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona

June 6 – Auditorio y Palacio de Congresos Príncipe Felipe in Oviedo

June 8 – National Concert Hall in Dublin

Critical acclaim:

“It was one of those moments that seem to stop time: As part of her semi‑staged “In War and Peace” concert, the great mezzo‑soprano sang Purcell’s “Dido’s Lament.” The aria’s repeated lines of “Remember Me” have rarely sounded so touching, or so meaningful.” (The Mercury News)

“…  the industrious and remarkably thoughtful mezzo-soprano brought something completely original to the august hall’s stage. In War and Peace: Harmony Through Music marked a curated theatrical presentation blending vocal and instrumental music with dance, design, fashion, video imagery and what might be termed either politics or philosophy.” (Opera News)

    What a world we live in! After a miserable week I get to tune into Great Art from half way around the world and partake in the talent of the world’s greatest living artist. Thank you all for making this happen. This was rich, soulful, delicious and wonderful and guides us all to keep our eyes on the prize. Civilization is a great thing and great civilization is a true joy. Art with a capital “A” restores, refreshes, stimulates and renews – just what we need in times like these.

What glorious human beings. It was he privilege of a lifetime to honor this amazing woman, Frederica Von Stade, recognizing the priceless contributions she makes to her community and to the world last night in San Francisco. Of course, it couldn’t have happened without the tireless and ever-inspiring Jake Heggie. I floated out of there convinced the love in that room (and the amazing young talent) can save the world!!! #ibelieve #musicismagic #SANFRANSISCOCOMMUNITYMUSICCENTER

What an unforgettable experience, bringing Massenet’s storybook opera #Cendrillon to the stage of the @metopera for the first time in its storied history. It has been a dream to sing about love while surrounded by so much of it - from the cast and crew, to the @metoperachorus, @metorchestra, to YOU the audience, who laughed and cried with us all. I’ll never tire of this story, a wonderful balm for the world. A billion thanks to everyone involved, most especially my #PrinceCharming, @alice.coote! #OperaIsMagic #happilyeverafter #firstandprobablylastmetstageselfie
