Joyce DiDonato & Daniela Barcellona Win The Olivier Award

Joyce DiDonato and Daniela Barcellona have won the Olivier Awards. 

The mezzo sopranos won the award for Best Achievement in Opera for their starring roles in “Semiramide” at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden during a ceremony on Sunday.

“Semiramide” also won Best New Opera Production. Barcellona accepted both awards thanking director David Alden, Rossini, and Sir Antonio Pappano. DiDonato was not present as she is rehearsing a new production of “Cendrillon” at the Metropolitan Opera. 

While the awards showcased the best in theater and opera, it was an evening where activism was present. During the evening many actors including Oscar nominees Lesly Manville and Bryan Cranston and Tony Award-winner Patti Lupone wore Times Up pins in support of the movement.

The Olivier Awards presented 27 accolades at the Royal Albert Hall.
