“With fiery, full-voiced singing that cut through the hall, DiDonato conveyed the conflicted emotions of the character, bringing soulful feeling to the middle section and dazzling coloratura fireworks to the finale.”

Chicago Classical Review

“DiDonato’s voice was a miracle of expressive charm, modulating between defenseless infatuation and eager bloodlust, but never better than when surrendering to tenderness, floating above the orchestra’s breathless silence.”
