Joyce DiDonato

Mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato, one of the world’s most famous opera singers, is performing officially for the first time in Greece her award-winning album In War & Peace, accompanied by the orchestra Il Pomo D 'Oro.

Notable for her interpretations of Handel’s, Mozart’s and Rossini’s works, DiDonato has performed with many of the world's leading opera companies and orchestras. Also, in 2012 (with Diva Divo) and 2016 (with Joyce & Tony - Live from Wigmore Hall) she won the Grammy Award for Best Classical Vocal Solo Album.

She has been proclaimed “perhaps the most potent female singer of her generation” by The New Yorker, while her voice is “nothing less than 24-carat gold” according to the Times. Moreover, the Financial Times judged her recent performance as Elena in Rossini’s La donna del Lago, as “simply the best singing I've heard in years”.

Joyce’s most recent release In War & Peace won the 2017 Best Recital Gramophone Award. She has also been honored with the Gramophone Artist of the Year and Recital of the Year awards, four German Echo Klassik Awards as Female Singer of the Year, and an induction into the Gramophone Hall of Fame.
