Harris Theater Announces BEYOND THE ARIA Virtual Season Finale with Joyce DiDonato

The Harris Theater for Music and Dance has announced an all-new Beyond the Aria program featuring mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato, a "transformative presence in the arts" (Jake Heggie, Gramophone), and winner of multiple GRAMMY Awards and the 2018 Olivier Award for outstanding achievement in opera.

DiDonato will perform with two current Ensemble members of Lyric Opera of Chicago's Patrick G. and Shirley W. Ryan Opera Center, South African tenor Lunga Eric Hallam and Mexico soprano Denis Vélez. Accompanied by series artistic director and pianist Craig Terry, with special guest cellist Kenneth Olsen, the artists will perform repertoire of their choosing. The program will be filmed live at the Harris on May 13, and available to stream for free on the Theater's HT Virtual Stage, May 20-27.

"We are thrilled that Joyce will be a part of this incredible roster of artists, a perfect finale for our virtual Beyond the Aria series," said Lori Dimun, Alexandra C. and John D. Nichols President and CEO of the Harris Theater. "The program is both a reflection of how we've adapted and persevered through this difficult year, and a celebration of the imminent reopening of our theater. We have so much to look forward to as the live performing arts return to our city's stages."
