This summer, Joyce DiDonato sings Berlioz’ La Mort de Cléopâtre June 15, 16 & 17 with the Berlin Philharmonic and conductor Ludovic Morlot. Performances take place at the Philharmonie, with a programme that also includes Ravel’s Ma Mère l’Oye (“Mother Goose”) Suite for Orchestra and Stravinsky’s L’Oiseau de feu (“The Firebird”) Suite. Watch the June 17 performance LIVE on the Digital Concert Hall!
From the Berlin Phil: The press described Joyce DiDonato’s Philharmonic debut in Berlioz’s La Damnation de Faust as “ravishingly nuanced” and “angelic”. Now the charming singer can be experienced as a Berlioz interpreter again when she addresses the delicate expressivity of the cantata La Mort de Cléopâtre. Conductor Yannick Nézet-Séguin will also present Ravel’s delightful suite Ma Mère l’Oye and Stravinsky’s revolutionary ballet music The Firebird.
