Joyce DiDonato Master Class 2015: Handel’s “Piangerò la sorte mia” from Giulio Cesare

Singer: Joyce DiDonato

Renowned mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato coaches Narea Son on Handel’s “Piangerò la sorte mia” from Giulio Cesare in the Resnick Education Wing as part of Carnegie Hall’s Workshops and Master Classes series. Visit
Winner of the 2012 Grammy Award for Best Classical Vocal Solo, Kansas-born Joyce DiDonato entrances audiences across the globe, and has been proclaimed “perhaps the most potent female singer of her generation” by The New Yorker. DiDonato has soared to the top of the industry both as a performer and a fierce advocate for the arts, gaining international prominence in operas by Handel and Mozart, as well as through her wide-ranging, acclaimed discography. She is also widely praised for her performances of bel canto roles of Rossini and Donizetti—the Financial Times judged her recent performances as Elena in La donna del lago as “simply the best singing I’ve heard in years.”

Aria Cleopatra

Piangerò la sorte mia,
sì crudele e tanto ria, finché vita in petto avrò. Ma poi morta d'ogn'intorno il tiranno e notte e giorno fatta spettro agiterò.

English Libretto or Translation:

Cleopatra air

I will cry my destiny,
so cruel and so much, as long as I live in my chest. But then the tyrant is dead all around, and night and day in the ghost, I will stir.
