Joyce DiDonato and Piotr Beczala, 8pm UK time (9pm Europe) tonight:



  • Jeffrey Biegel says:

    Thank you!

  • Cynical Bystander says:

    Ms DiDonato and Mr Beczala are true stars.


  • Willymh says:

    The world needs music and they, bless them and their accompanists, are making sure it gets it. Thank you to all four performers.

  • Bloom says:

    Much appreciated initiative. Thanks. Mrs Di Donato is one of the greatest communicators in the operaworld today.

  • Heldensopran says:

    I was lucky to see the very last orchestra rehearsal last Wednesday and they were both breathtakingly glorious. Sang full out the third and fourth acts TWICE! and both times they were their all and how!!! Ying Fang was also stupendous in her aria and overall Maestro Yannick has this music in his veins. I looked forward to seeing several of the performances and alas it was not meant to be!!!! Joyce was a true revelation and Piotr is of course the greatest tenor in the world hands down, but I never heard him sing more gloriously than that magnificent morning!

  • Michael in Missouri says:

    In addition to being a generous and thoughtful act, it was also a delightful experience, with the Beczala and DiDonato singing their socks off. (literally, in the case of the latter.)

  • Carole says:

    I am the mom of two young singers whose current productions were just cancelled the day before opening. Please support young artists…show them your love. My two are rather dejected right now, as are countless others.

  • BrianB says:

    Great idea!
