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. In a filmed concert at Barcelona's Gran Teatre del Liceu, DiDonato performs a recital of arias from her latest album, joined by Il Pomo d'Oro and the harpsichordist-conductor Maxim Emelyanichev.
