Internationally Acclaimed Opera Singer Joyce DiDonato to Release Album, IN WAR AND PEACE: HARMONY THROUGH MUSIC, 11/4Internationally Acclaimed Opera Singer Joyce DiDonato to Release Album, IN WAR AND PEACE: HARMONY THROUGH MUSIC, 11/4

The multiple GRAMMY-winning mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato is widely recognized as one of the world's great opera singers. The New Yorker has proclaimed her “perhaps the most potent female singer of her generation,” and The New York Times has described her as “the perfect 21st-century diva—an effortless combination of glamour, charisma, intelligence, grace and remarkable talent.” She is known not only for her extraordinary virtuosity, but also for her impassioned social engagement. Perhaps more than any project in her career to date, DiDonato's new album, In War and Peace: Harmony through Music, epitomizes this combination of qualities. The collection of Baroque arias arose from her pondering the question, in the wake of the 2015 terrorist attacks on Paris and Brussels, “In the midst of chaos, how do you find peace?” DiDonato hopes the album, out November 4 on Erato / Warner Classics, and concert presentation, with which she will tour 12 countries between November 2016 and June 2017, will help listeners answer the same question. Please see below for an itinerary of live performances. (more...)

The fact that Streisand impresses with her delightful humor and powerful vocals is no surprise; it is the stars' performances like Anne Hathaway and Melissa McCarthy that are unexpected. Many of the songs include some dialogue, which adds to its feel as a true theatre album. (more...)
