This is from Joyce DiDonato's Guildhall masterclasses in the spring of 2015. I try not to miss any of JDDs classes, but somehow, I overlooked this one. Thanks to YouTube algorithms, this video popped up in a sidebar yesterday. Watch and learn about the many facets of Donna Elvira, and JDD's ideas and guidance. She gets a little physical, but I think student soprano Francesca Chiejina survived the session—and came away with a lot more insight to the role. I can't wait to see her on stage!
