The multi-Grammy Award-winning mezzo-soprano singer, Joyce DiDonato, is bringing her towering vocal talents from America to Abu Dhabi, to perform with Italy’s dynamic and world-renowned Il Pomo d’Oro Orchestra. Under the baton of charismatic conductor Maxim Emelyanychev, In War & Peace will combine some of the most powerful works by Handel, Purcell and other opera luminaries, culminating in a truly unforgettable night of rousing music and a voice that The Times described as “nothing less than 24-carat gold”.
