Joyce DiDonato, Mezzo-soprano

Presented by UCSB Arts & Lectures

“A transformative presence in the arts.” Gramophone

“Perhaps the most potent female singer of her generation.” The New Yorker

Mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato is not only one of the finest singers in the world of opera, but one of its most theatrical and imaginative. In this cabaret-style recital, DiDonato and pianist Craig Terry are joined by an all-star jazz group. They perform the standard lesson repertoire for beginning singers (24 Italian Songs and Arias), reimagining each song in the manner of a jazz standard. DiDonato takes a playful look at the arduous process of classical vocal training while illuminating the timeless beauty of a great song in any style.
