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.

Leaving Athens with the fullest of hearts, having met these extraordinary - and I do mean EXTRAORDINARY - young men in Athens. They played and sang for me and with me, along with many other beautiful young people, and they deserve every single opportunity in the world. Thank you, boys, for bringing such beauty, joy, love, and peace to me! We will meet again! @alabrasabdullah @pouya.pouya.372 @vic_palazzo2004 #skaramagascamp @elsistemagreece

A big thank you to the #Halle #HandelFestival for the wonderful reception and for granting me the #HandelPreis2018. It was deeply moving to be in the birthplace of a composer who has given me countless gifts as an artist, surrounded by so many people working to keep his legacy alive and thriving. It was an evening I’ll never forget. 📸 @ralfpleger
