From the first note in the overture to the standing ovation at the end, Santa Fe Opera’s opening performance of Gioachino Rossini’s La Donna del Lago was outstanding. The story for this opera comes from Sir Walter Scott’s narrative poem The Lady of the Lake. Rossini composed this piece for singers with great breath control, beautiful phrasing and agility; those characteristics are present in abundant quantities in this production.
Joyce DiDonato is absolutely stunning. Every aspect of her performance has depth and character, and she brings an underlying sense of innocence to Elena that makes her appealing. She makes her ornaments sound easy and her brilliant, lyrical voice never sounds fatigued, even after hours of singing. The audience loved DiDonato, and it is easy to understand why.
