Joyce DiDonato, mezzo-soprano: SONGPLAY

NEC’s Jordan Hall

The “perfect 21st century diva” (New York Times) is a proud Kansan, a fierce arts advocate, a charismatic social media standout (follow her @JoyceDiDonato), and one of the most exciting and sought-after stars in opera, bringing fire and intelligence to Baroque, bel canto, and contemporary heroines. For her much-anticipated Boston recital debut, she and her five-piece ensemble will perform a broad range of improvisation-forward musical styles – ranging from Italian old-style art songs to jazz – in a joyful program that will draw unexpected and serendipitous connections across centuries and genres.

Joyce DiDonato voice

Runtime: Approximately 90 minutes without intermission.

“Joyce DiDonato treated her fans to a top performance. Not a standard solo recital, but a magical night of total theater, with great singing and music.”
