On December 11, 2022, renowned mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato will return to Carnegie Hall’s Resnick Education Wing for a three-day series of master classes with some of opera’s rising young stars.

Collaborative pianists Justina Lee and Ken Noda will accompany soprano Anchal Indu Dhir and Marissa Moultrie, mezzo Rael Rent, tenor Lawrence Barasa, and baritone Łukasz Zientarski. The program includes additional coaching, private sessions, and a career panel with experts from the opera industry.

The classes will be open to the public, as well as streamed live on Carnegie Hall’s website and, where they will be available to watch for one year.

These classes will be the first held by DiDonato at Carnegie Hall since 2019, shortly before the beginning of the pandemic. Early next year, young opera students will be featured again in Renee Fleming’s upcoming SongStudio, designed to further the craft of the vocal recital.

Classes will be held on December 11, 12, and 13, 2022, with tickets available to purchase beginning at $25.
