Joyce DiDonato


Joyce DiDonato in a blue floaty top with her arms above her head, with red face paint on her temple and the sides of her face

Joyce DiDonato explores the majesty, might and mystery of nature, contemplating our place on this planet through the magic of theatre and the transformative power of music.

Eden picks up where DiDonato’s last project In War and Peace left off, bringing together timeless opera arias, new contemporary works, poetry and drama with DiDonato’s incredible voice and powerful stage presence in search of the restorative balance of nature. And she has the perfect partners to accompany her on this journey in Italian Baroque ensemble il Pomo d’Oro and Music Director Maxim Emelyanychev, looking to build on a fruitful creative partnership that has already garnered multiple GRAMMY nominations.

‘In a world that is bustling at full speed, I find myself searching more and more for the nourishing solitude of nature. The force that we dare call “Mother Nature” never fails to reclaim Her dominance, to illuminate Her mystery or to humble us at Her feet, all while lavishing on us Her wondrous gift of life. This search leads here..’
