Eden - Megaron Athens Concert Hall

Eden Joyce DiDonato

JOYCE-SergiJasanada0112 - site test

Overview

After her award-winning project “In War and Peace: Harmony through Music”, watched by more than three million spectators worldwide, Joyce DiDonato channels her visionary creativity and artistry into her new passion: EDEN. Using sensational musical and theatrical themes to explore the grandeur, power and mystery of nature, the great mezzo takes spectators on an emotional journey to reconnect themselves with nature’s power and fragility and realise their place within our wondrous kaleidoscopic world. Joining forces with Orchestra Il Pomo d’Oro, French director Marie Lambert and her own musical collaborators, Joyce DiDonato presents a project that she hopes will become a milestone, as it speaks directly to the hearts of people when they most need it.
