About Joyce DiDonato

Named "the most potent female singer of her generation" by The New Yorker, mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato has soared to the top of the industry as both a performer and a fierce arts advocate. She has gained international prominence in operas by Rossini, Handel and Mozart, as well as through her diverse discography. This season, the Grammy Award winner will be in residence at Carnegie Hall in New York and the Barbican Centre in London, and will perform as Elena in La donna del lago at the Metropolitan Opera, as Charlotte in Werther with Royal Opera House Covent Garden, and in recital in Amsterdam and Vienna.

The Conversations series is generously supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
