Duration: 90 minutes without intermission

An exceptional performer, Joyce DiDonato has stood out through the originality of her projects, shedding new light on repertoires thought out and put into communication with perspectives as surprising as they are refreshing. One of the latest examples is Songplay, a project in which, accompanied by top musicians, she creates bridges between opera, jazz and tango.  According to the singer, it was inspired by both baroque composer Francesco Cavalli and jazz singer Chet Baker. In 2020, the project’s recording was awarded a Grammy for Best Classical Music Vocal Album.
