Before the turn of the 20th century there was an American soprano, Lilian Norton who became internationally famous, and was called the “Yankee Diva.” She was given a stage name, Lilian Nordica, by an Italian maestro at the beginning of her operatic career, convincing her that European opera-goers would not tolerate a diva with a plain sounding, American name.

Mezzo soprano Joyce DiDonato is called the Yankee Diva these days – at least on her youtube and flickr accounts, and she has roots in the American Midwest.

We’ll hear DiDonato’s artistry from her very first recordings to the latest release on Erato on this episode of What’s New!
