Although the exact programme has yet to be announced, a wise punter would bet on a line-up that straddles the bel canto and baroque. Best known for her work on Handel, – in whose Ariodante she will star later in the venue's 2016-17 season – Mozart and Rossini, it is likely she will explore some of the lesser-known corners of this repertoire. These suspicions are compounded by the presence of Italian period ensemble Il Pomo d’Oro, who recently regaled the venue with Handel’s Tamerlano.
Whatever the final bill – and we’ll update
you with this information as soon as it becomes available – DiDonato’s joyous
presence and expansive voice is certain to make this a delight.
