Songs and arias by composers including Antonio Vivaldi, Gabriel Fauré, Gioacchino Rossini, Franz Schubert, Robert Schumann, Michael Head, and Reynaldo Hahn "A commanding, royal presence" is how Vanity Fair refers to golden-voiced mezzo Joyce DiDonato, who says the characters in her recent album, "Drama Queens," run the gamut of emotions from "suicidal sadness to rapturous bliss." For Gramophone Magazine's Hall of Fame issue, composer Jake Heggie said the Kansas-born mega-star's staggering artistry "reminds us that in any generation there are few giants... She is a transformative presence... Joyce sings and the world is suddenly brighter. Every gleaming note and phrase is infused with connection, meaning and an almost unnerving empathy." And here is Alex Ross in The New Yorker: "There are singers who are secure in technique but cautious in expression, there are singers who deliver passion but damage the ears, and then there is Joyce DiDonato, who consistently finds the golden mean... [She] has a way of capturing extreme emotions without resorting to excess: she is a singer not only of flair and power but of intelligence and taste." The intelligent (not to mention tasteful) thing for you to do would be to purchase tickets to her only 2014 United States recital -- right here in Princeton -- right now.
