Yep… I am a huge fan of Joyce Di Donato. I feel that her voice quality is terrific, and she’s am amazing actress who enhances all her roles by adding further dimensions to her singing.
This performance is about the two leading roles, Juan Diego and DiDonato. They are charismatic stylish singers who never fail to deliver. The listener is treated to some of the best Rossini singing in years. When they are on stage there is an “event” that is unmatched. Clearly this is a five – star performance.
While there are, for me, always issues with staging, lighting, and cinematography, when it comes to the music by the two principal roles this is great!
Here are Joyce DiDonato and Juan Diego Flórez in the act I duet from “La Cenerentola”
