About

"In the midst of chaos, how do you find peace?" Superstar mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato turns to Baroque opera to answer this very contemporary question. This filmed concert at Barcelona's Gran Teatre del Liceu presents DiDonato performing arias from her latest album, accompanied by Il Pomo d'Oro and its harpsichordist-conductor Maxim Emelyanichev.
