From the musical mind of Joyce DiDonato comes Eden, the mezzo-soprano’s latest project, co-commissioned by Cal Performances, explores the majesty, might, and mystery of the natural world. As in her most recent Cal Performances program In War & Peace: Harmony Through Music, DiDonato is joined by longtime partners, the early-music ensemble Il Pomo d’Oro. The theatrical, semi-staged concert features music from the 17th to 21st centuries by Handel, Gluck, Cavalli, Wagner, Mahler, Ives, and Copland. Oscar-winning British composer Rachel Portman composes a new work specially for the project, setting a text by American poet Gene Scheer for The First Morning of the World.
