Harris Theater to Present Joyce DiDonato’s ‘EDEN’

By Francisco Salazar

The Joan W. and Irving B. Harris Theater for Music and Dance is set to present “EDEN” by Joyce DiDonato on the HTP Mainstage.

The concert will be presented on April 16, 2022, and will follow the mezzo’s ground-breaking and award-winning global project “In War & Peace: Harmony Through Music” which reached over 3 million viewers worldwide.

EDEN is DiDonato’s latest multi-faceted initiative uniting music, drama, and education to challenge and galvanize audiences, transcending the physical concert hall.

The program ranges will include music from the 17th to the 21st century and will include composers Händel, Gluck, Wagner, Mahler, Ives, and Copland as well as a new work from Academy Award-winner Rachel Portman commissioned specially for this project.

The program will include Il Pomo d’Oro and conductor Maxim Emelyanychev.
