Joyce DiDonato can do almost anything. She can sing high and low, loud and soft, and somehow make it all seem natural. She can manage florid runs and agitated climaxes as if they were expressive devices, not just vocal pyrotechnics. She can look sweetly demure, fondling flowers, or awesomely heroic, confronting royalty. She can make a simple gown look elegant, and a small gesture look big. Most important, she can reinforce such achievements with a mezzo-soprano â€” maybe a soprano sfogato â€” equally notable for richness and purity. - Martin Bernheimer, Wall Street Journal Joyce DiDonato is the worldâ€™s greatest living mezzo-soprano, thrilling audiences with, and garnering universal critical acclaim for, her expression, stagecraft, and flawless technique. The reception of her performances in the Paul Curran production of Rossiniâ€™s La Donna del Lago for the Metropolitan Opera were no exception, and this DVD and Bluray release, whose stellar cast includes Juan Diego Florez, John Osborn and Daniela Barcellona, cements this as a signature role for DiDonato.
