Mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato’s performances have been called “a model of singing in which all components of the art form—technique, sound, color, nuance, diction—come together in service to expression and eloquence” by The New York Times. The revered singer presents a series of three public master classes for young opera singers who were chosen from an international pool of applicants.

Cara sposa, amante cara,
Deh! Ritorna a' pianti miei!
Del vostro Erebo sull'ara,
Colla face dello sdegno
Io vi sfido, o spirti rei!
Beloved spouse, dearest heart
Where art thou?
Woe! Return to him who weeps!
O guilty spirits from thy Erebus altar
My face on of complete contempt,
I defy thee, wicked spirits!
