About the Concert

Not just an opera diva! The US mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato is one of the greats of her profession and, as a "pugnacious optimist", also wants to inspire people to think with her programmes. Her new project "Eden" is a sound statement for the beauty and fragility of our planet. Together with the ensemble il Pomo d'Oro under the direction of Maxim Emelyanychev, she sings about human natural sensations and evokes the meaning of this Garden of Eden given to us. To this end, she virtuously combines songs and arias from Handel to Mahler, from de' Cavalieri to Wagner, demonstrating the importance of balance between man and nature. DiDonato describes her vision as a "musical exploration through the centuries to create a new Eden out of ourselves".

Philharmonischer Kinderchor Dresden

The children's choir owes its foundation to an initiative of the then chief conductor of the Dresden Philharmonic Orchestra, Kurt Masur, in 1967 and thus looks back on a history of more than fifty years. Today, the Dresden Philharmonic Children's Choir is one of the best-known and most successful children's choirs in Germany. The continuous professional work with the children is supported by the close cooperation with the Dresden Philharmonic Orchestra.
