Twittering about it isn't really enough. So let's just take a moment to marvel at the extraordinary Joyce DiDonato, who broke her leg during the first act of Il Barbiere di Siviglia last night at Covent Garden — and finished the performance, complete with a flower-bedecked crutch. I mean, what can you say about a person who does that? I knew she was a pretty special kind of singer (and person) but, well, wow. Anyway, much more — and some rather amazing curtain call photos besides — at Intermezzo, where I first read about all this. And of course, the glorious Yankee Diva herself has already blogged about it: and is typically full of nothing but sunshine and positive thoughts, and busy working out how to get through the rest of the season. Joyce, you're a miracle: here's to a speedy recovery.
