Joyce El-Khoury’s Imogene (Il pirata) will be streamed on France Musique

You can hear Joyce’s Imogene (Il Pirata Bellini) in this France Musique broadcast of this Opéra National de Bordeaux performance from Nov 6, 2017. Opéra Magazine said of Joyce’s performance (translated from French):

Let us say it right away: the performance of the Canadian soprano Joyce El-Khoury is miraculous…We’re left open-mouthed with admiration: the infinite length of her breath, the science of chiaroscuro, her projection in the high register, the quality of her pianissimo, the variety of accents, by turns strong and vulnerable, included in the extraordinarily lively recits, like we haven’t heard them since Callas. As for the bewitching cantilena, no Imogene had reached such heights since Caballé!”
