The mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato scored a hit singing the title role in Rossini’s La donna del lago last summer at Santa Fe Opera. When she returns to town for a recital this week, she will bring along further operatic items by the same composer, the “Willow Song” from his Otello and the chestnut “Una voce poco fa” from Il barbiere di Siviglia. Also on the program are familiar arias from Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro and Handel’s Giulio Cesare, a not-so-familiar one by Handel’s near-contemporary Johann Adolf Hasse, and selected songs by early 20th-century composers Fernando Obradors and Reynaldo Hahn. Pianist Craig Terry assists. The performance, presented by the Santa Fe Concert Association, takes place on Monday, March 31, at 6:30 p.m. at the Lensic Performing Arts Center (211 W. San Francisco St.). Tickets ($25 to $95) are available by calling 505-988-1234 and visiting www.ticketssantafe.org. — J.M.K.
