Winner of multiple Grammy Awards and the 2018 Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Opera, the Kansas-born mezzo-soprano stars annually at the world’s most prestigious opera houses and concert venues. Her stylistic versatility encompasses recent successes in roles as diverse as the title role/Agrippina (Met premiere/new production, international tour of concert version with Il Pomo d’Oro), the title role/Semiramide (Bavarian State Opera and London’s Royal Opera House), Didon/Les Troyens (Vienna State Opera), the title role/Cendrillon (Met premiere, after previous triumphs at The Santa Fe Opera and London’s Royal Opera House), Charlotte/Werther (ROH), and Sister Helen/Dead Man Walking (Teatro Real Madrid, London’s Barbican Centre). DiDonato has premiered numerous works, including Jake Heggie’s opera Great Scott (The Dallas Opera) and his song cycle Camille Claudel: Into the Fire. She triumphed as a featured soloist in the BBC Last Night of the Proms and has collaborated in recent seasons with such major orchestras and conductors as the Chicago Symphony Orchestra under Muti, the Berlin Philharmonic under Rattle, Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique under Gardiner, the Philadelphia Orchestra under Nézet-Séguin, and the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia Orchestra and the National Youth Orchestra USA under Pappano. The mezzo’s activities during the pandemic have included a solo recital, filmed in Germany’s Jahrhunderthalle and streamed worldwide. The latest additions to her exceptionally diverse discography include Agrippina, Les Troyens (Gramophone’s 2018 Recording of the Year, among many other awards), and three solo discs: In War & Peace, Songplay (Gramophone Best Recital Award winner), and Schubert’s Winterreise.
