Di Donato to play Florence Foster Jenkins

Well, that’s a lovely announcement!

Joyce DiDonato to star in documentary feature film as Florence Foster Jenkins

In all my experience, I don’t know that I’ve ever encountered a singer who has lived more radically for the sheer act of singing, and the uninhibited sharing of that singing, than the legendary Florence Foster Jenkins. Portraying her on film, my intention will not be to create any kind of a caricature, but instead to enter fully into her zany, passionate world where singing was paramount and the audacity of her desire to sing “like a bird” ruled all.
– Joyce DiDonato
