‘Winterreise’ with Joyce DiDonato & Yannick Nézet-Séguin

The DiDonato/Nézet-Séguin pairing is inspired, one of those special nights where you rarely get to see two musical superstars pull off a work of this magnitude. DiDonato put everything she had into this music, showing her theatrical side with a voice that is peerless as ever. Nézet-Séguin told her as they started rehearsing that this music, this story, must speak to her, and she clearly heeded his advice.

Les Troyens / Wiener Staatsoper

„Es war zweifelsohne der große Abend der Joyce Didonato, die am Sonntag erstmals an der Staatsoper eine Premiere sang und gleichzeitig ihr persönliches Debüt als Didon in Hector Berlioz’ letzter Oper “Les Troyens” gab. Unglaublich, wie intensiv sie musikalische Emotionen in Gesten und Klang umsetzen kann, wie sie egal ob als unendlich Liebende und vom […]
