Joyce DiDonato is one of the most beloved singers by the audiences of Barcelona.  Winner of several Grammy Awards, and the 2018 Olivier Award for excellence in opera, Joyce DiDonato, born in Kansas and based in Barcelona, enchants audiences around the world with her voice. DiDonato presents the album Eden live, a personal journey from Baroque to contemporary compositions by Portman, passing through Cavalli, Gluck, Copland, Mahler and Wagner, with the ecstatic contemplation of nature, sustainability and environmentalism as the common thread. An album inspired by the exuberant rebirth of nature following the inactivity and non-intervention of humans during the first months of confinement. A parenthesis for nature.

Il Pomo de Oro accompanies Joyce DiDonato in this musical project. The ensemble, directed by Maxim Emelyanychev, is a benchmark in the baroque repertoire.
