JOYCE DiDONATO (Voice of Maria Callas) has gained international prominence in operas by Handel and Mozart, as well as through her wide-ranging, acclaimed discography. She is widely acclaimed for the bel canto roles of Rossini and Donizetti. The New Yorker called her "perhaps the most potent female singer of her generation" and she won Grammy Awards for Best Classical Solo Vocal Album, for "Joyce and Tony: Live at Wigmore Hall" (2016), and Best Classical Vocal Solo Album, for "Diva Divo" (2012), in which she sang arias for roles played by female and male characters. Her other honors include the Gramophone Artist of the Year and Recital of the Year awards, and an induction into the Gramophone Hall of Fame.

DiDonato's recent operatic triumphs include her Cendrillon and Adalgisa "Norma" for the Metropolitan Opera, her Semiramide for the Royal Opera House under Sir Antonio Pappano, her Sister Helen "Dead Man Walking" at the Teatro Real Madrid and Barbican, London. She returns to the Vienna State Opera next season in her first staged Didon "Les Troyens" following huge critical acclaim of the release of the opera in 2017 on CD by Warner with John Nelson conducting.

DiDonato recently held residencies at Carnegie Hall and at London's Barbican Centre, toured extensively in South America, Europe and Asia, and appeared as guest soloist at the BBC's "Last Night of the Proms." Her other recent opera highlights included "Semiramide" (Bavarian State Opera), "Les Troyens," "Werther" (The Royal Opera), the title role in "Maria Stuarda" (Metropolitan Opera, The Royal Opera, and the Liceu in Barcelona), and the title role in "Ariodante" on tour with the English Concert and Harry Bicket.

An exclusive recording artist with Erato/Warner Classics, Joyce's recent release "In War & Peace" won the 2017 Best Recital Gramophone Award. Her other recordings include "Stella di Napoli," a collection of bel canto performances, "Drama Queens," and "ReJoyce!," a retrospective of her first ten years of recordings.
