In War & Peace: Harmony Through Music

24 January @ 8.00 pm - 10.00 pm

AED 175 – AED 375

The noted American mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato makes her Arab World debut in this pre-festival performance of the 16th Abu Dhabi Festival. Born of a personal project to create a set of little-known Neapolitan Baroque opera arias, and first produced as an album in 2016, In War & Peace is DiDonato’s plea for world peace in a modern, turbulent and violent era; joined by the Italian orchestra Il Pomo d’Oro under its Russian chief conductor Maxim Emelyanychev, DiDonato will perform a collection of Baroque opera arias by Handel, Purcell, Jommelli, and Monteverdi that explore war and peace, both external and internal. Manuel Palazzo’s costume: Lasha Rostobaia
