Joyce DiDonato has assumed a regal status among mezzos for her musical brilliance, dramatic presence and disarming warmth of personality on stage and off. Here she dons the crown to portray some of opera's greatest queens. Troubled, assertive, powerful and vulnerable, these are character portraits by some of the most evocative composers in history including Monteverdi, Handel, Haydn and Gluck. DiDonato is joined by her friends and regular collaborators the baroque ensemble Il Complesso Barocco directed by violinist Dmitry Sinkovsky.
