Primephonic Interview

From a small city in the suburbs of Kansas City to some of the world’s most prestigious music venues and stages: looking back, what have been the major challenges involved in this meteoric rise to fame and change of perspective?

An enormous challenge has been to manage the exhaustive travel and a life with very few roots in place.  But once I learned to embrace the lifestyle rather than battle with it, things fell into a very good rhythm and I can say that I really enjoy this life that brings to many surprising moments to me.

New production of ‘Norma’ at The Metropolitan Opera

Joyce DiDonato’s 2017/18 season launches in New York City, where she will star as Adalgisa in a new production of Bellini’s Norma at The Metropolitan Opera. The performances, which also open The Met’s season, take place September 25 & 28 and October 3, 7, 11, 16 & 20. Sondra Radvanovsky sings the title role, with Marina Rebeka in the last two performances, and tenor Joseph Calleja sings Pollione. Carlo Rizzi conducts the Met Opera Orchestra for all dates, with a spectacular staging from Sir David McVicar. Ms. DiDonato returns to the Met stage later in the season, to sing the title role in Massenet’s Cendrillon.

“As expected, DiDonato has virtuosity to spare, but what makes this disc special is the shimmering radiance of emotion she brings to operas such as Bellini’s Adelson e Salvini and Pacini’s Saffo. In Mary Stuart’s radiantly sung solo before her execution DiDonato leaves no doubt that her own star is at its height.”

My New Year’s Resolute Suggestions for Singers, et al …

So, that was 2016 … !  I’ve always loved looking back at a recently closed chapter in my life, analyzing it to learn what worked well (and what didn’t), appreciating it for what it was, and setting up my game plan for the next adventure.  While this past year has been an astonishing one for me in many ways, I have to ask: is anyone else out there happy to usher this particular 365-day cycle out the door?  I thought so.  So, that means THIS is the moment for us to decide HOW we want to open the door to the next cycle.
