‘In War and Peace: Harmony Through Music’ – The Final Tour

This autumn marks the final tour of Joyce DiDonato’s award-winning project “In War and Peace: Harmony Through Music.” Ms. DiDonato and Il Pomo d’Oro, under the direction of Maxim Emelyanychev, bring the project to South America for the first time, presenting concerts in Bogotá, Santo Domingo, São Paulo, Las Condes, and Buenos Aires. Since the first world tour of IWAP in 2016, this phenomenal project has reached a total audience of 2.3 million people worldwide (including live attendance and online viewers).

Ms. DiDonato presents fully-staged performances of music from her album In War and Peace: Harmony Through Music, with arias from Handel and Purcell, among other great opera masters. The striking and powerful production features stage direction by Ralf Pleger, lighting design by Henning Blum, and video designs by Yousef Iskandar. The recording, released by Erato in 2016, received Gramophone’s 2017 Recital of the Year award.

Following performances in South America, Joyce and the ensemble head to the U.S. for concerts in Atlanta on November 3 at the Schwarz Center for Performing Arts, in Houston on November 6 at the Houston Grand Opera, and concluding in Washington D.C on November 8 & 9 at the Eisenhower Theater. The performance at Teatro Mayor in Bogotá will be recorded and streamed via Teatro Digital on November 7. More information is available via InWarandPeace.com.
