Mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato sings the totle role in Rossini's LA DONNA DEL LAGO.

Joyce DiDonato and Juan Diego Flórez join forces for this Rossini showcase of bel canto virtuosity, set in the medieval Scottish highlands. DiDonato is the “lady of the lake” of the title, and Flórez is the king who relentlessly pursues her, with their vocal fireworks embellishing the tragic plot. This Met premiere production is conducted by Michele Mariotti. Saturday, March 14, 1 to 4:30 pm on WRTI.
