Joyce DiDonato Master Class 2015: Handel’s “Ombra mai fu” from Serse

Singer: Joyce DiDonato

Renowned mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato coaches Kayleigh Decker on Handel’s “Ombra mai fu” from Serse 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.”

Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Frondi tenere e belle
del mio platano amato
per voi risplenda il fato.
Tuoni, lampi, e procelle
non v'oltraggino mai la cara pace,
né giunga a profanarvi austro rapace.

Ombra mai fu
di vegetabile,
cara ed amabile,
soave più.

English Libretto or Translation:

Tender and beautiful fronds
of my beloved plane tree,
let Fate smile upon you.
May thunder, lightning, and storms
never disturb your dear peace,
nor may you by blowing winds be profaned.

Never was a shade
of any plant
dearer and more lovely,
or more sweet.
