While I'm impatiently awaiting the opera cast list, I present this video of the lovely Joyce DiDonato. It's a promo for her new Handel CD, Furore!. Watch this. The music will make your heart race (if you have any blood in your veins; otherwise, I promise nothing).
Not only does this show off Ms. DiDonato's outstanding singing, but it shows her as a person. She completely dispels the "diva" image and I love that. She's a real person! haha Seriously though, she is really amazing-- definitely one of my favorites.
Grab some popcorn and a heart monitor and watch some clips from the exciting Furore!.
