“Staggering, joyful artistry…a transformative artist!”—Gramophone
When it comes to captivating an audience, no artist outshines Joyce DiDonato.
Be there for an evening of vocal splendor and spirit as this Grammy Award-winning megastar performs Berlioz’s famous La mort de Cléopâtre (The Death of Cleopatra) and Jake Heggie’s mesmerizing Camille Claudel: Into the Fire. Based on the life of the renowned sculptress (and Rodin’s lover), this masterwork “compresses a tragic life of operatic dimensions into a song cycle of great beauty and emotional resonance” (The New York Times). Also featured: Beethoven’s stirring “Coriolan” Overture with The Dallas Opera Orchestra.
