Another "Una Voce" ... this one with a true twist. Indeed Joyce
DiDonato thought she had only twisted her ankle after a fall during a
performance of BARBER at Covent Garden and she gamely finished that evening on
crutches. Subsequently, doctors found she had broken her leg. Trouper of the
first magnitude she played out the rest of the performances in a cast (pink)
... twisting, twirling in a wheelchair and managing to sing the hell out of
the role all at the same time.
