Joyce DiDonato is undoubtedly one of the most charismatic divas to rise in the last century, and is beloved whether she’s taking the stage (even with a broken leg), recording music to remember, singing at the Super Bowl, teaching master classes to a worldwide audience or dishing out sage words we can all carry with us. Thanks, Joyce.
“No-one is ever lesser for having taken the journey”
— Joyce DiDonato
This collection of Bel Canto treasures centers around the city of Naples, the birthplace of the genre. Performing favorite and rare arias by Bellini and Rossini as well as Giovanni Pacini, Carlo Valentini, Michele Carafa and more, DiDonato is stunning with conductor Riccardo Minasi and the Orchestre de l’Opera National de Lyon. This Euro import is a CD gem for an avid collector or a student of bel canto style.
