Joyce DiDonato and Nicole Cabell are setting the operatic world on fire with their vocal splendor as Romeo and Giulietta on stage at the San Francisco Opera:
“Joyce DiDonato and soprano Nicole Cabell will astonish you as Romeo and Juliet” ~ Mercury News
” … their voices blending almost as magically as the fabled duo of Joan Sutherland and Marilyn Horne.” ~ SF Classical Voice
Joyce’s ardent portrayal as Romeo confirms her status as one of the great interpretors of this iconic role.
“DiDonato [...] is her generation’s great exponent of pants roles, her masculine swagger and penetrating, slightly reedy voice making her a riveting figure on stage. She’s also one of the great living virtuosos in florid music; there seems to be nothing she can’t sing with utter ease and confidence. Her command and virtuosity made Romeo the most convincing character in the opera.” ~ The Classical Review
