Taking on the challenge of portraying the flamboyant ’queen of dissonance‘ is opera superstar Joyce DiDonato. This casting enables
the audience to experience two contrasting musical worlds: the melodious music Florence Foster Jenkins claimed to make, and the dissonant reality that her listeners were subjected to. Renowned experts in the field, contemporary witnesses, as well as original audio recordings and previously unpublished photos gradually expose the scandal and mystery that still surrounds Florence Foster Jenkins.
