The Reigning Queen of Royal Arias

Joyce diDonato has been wowing audiences in recent months – “The Capulets and the Montagues” in San Francisco, then “Maria Stuarda” in New York – and clearly enjoying it all. In this album, she explores some less familiar repertory, reprising major moments for royal characters in a number of 17th- and 18th-century works. “These arias catch queens at their most fragile and human – not to mention their most virtuosic – and DiDonato’s patented blend of vulnerability, visceral energy and sheer agility is precisely what they need,” says Australia’s Limelight magazine.
