The Philadelphia Orchestra

Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
A highlight of Joyce DiDonato’s Perspectives series is this celebration of music from the bel canto era. Curated by the mezzo-soprano, this evening of arias, ensembles, and orchestral selections ranges from Rossini and Bellini to surprising gems by lesser-known composers of the time. Joining The Philadelphia Orchestra is a lineup of well-known bel canto stars: soprano Nicole Cabell, tenor Lawrence Brownlee, and conductor Maurizio Benini.
