“The perfect 21st-century diva – an effortless combination of glamour, charisma, intelligence, grace and remarkable talent.” The New York Times

“A great, brave and inspiring artist... Joyce sings and the world is suddenly brighter.” Gramophone

Metropolitan Opera superstar Joyce DiDonato will take a rare break from performing the title role in The Met's production of Cendrillon to make her Santa Barbara debut. Don't miss today's reigning diva, performing live!

Mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato entrances audiences across the globe with “a warmth in [her] voice that can intensify into fire” (The New Yorker). With her latest and most personal album, In War and Peace, DiDonato offers powerful interpretations of Baroque arias. Now, making her Santa Barbara recital debut, she will perform her exquisite rendition of Handel’s “Lascia ch’io pianga” – named one of NPR's Top 100 Songs of 2016 – along with her Rossini bel canto and other gems.
