Joyce DiDonato stars in a live world-premiere recording of an opera written specifically for her: Great Scott by Jake Heggie.

Heggie, who has been described as American opera’s most successful composer, chose the celebrated playwright Terrence McNally as his librettist for Great Scott. The two previously collaborated on the gripping Dead Man Walking, which has become something of a modern classic since its premiere in 2000. Joyce DiDonato first performed its central role, Sister Helen Prejean, at New York City Opera in 2002.

Fred Plotkin of WQXR, the USA’s leading classical music radio station, welcomed Great Scott as a “deeply moving and musically brilliant work” that “should enter the standard repertory just as Heggie’s two previous masterpieces – Dead Man Walking and Moby-Dick – already have.”
