Joyce DiDonato, mezzo-soprano
il Pomo d’Oro
Sunday, April 24, 7pm
The Music Center at Strathmore
Famed for a “presence felt with immediacy—vocally, viscerally, and with virtuosic impact” (Opera Today), Joyce DiDonato returns to Washington Performing Arts with a new, visionary passion project: Eden. Weaving together elements of theater and music—including works by Handel, Ives, Gluck, Mahler, and others—DiDonato explores both humanity’s essence and the majesty, might, and mystery of Nature. Joining her on stage is il Pomo d’Oro, an acclaimed, 20-member chamber orchestra specializing in historical performance. As DiDonato herself said of the project, “I want to use my voice and my vision now to go straight into the hearts of my listeners, and make them feel how precious our lives are, how wondrous our vast Earth is, and how absolutely vital our connection to one another is.”
