“The Argentinean mezzo, who sounds like a contralto, has a lush rumbling of her lower chest which few singers can draw upon.”

JFK Fort Worth Opera Review

  • Henry Stewart, Opera News

“The greatest of these went to Jackie, sung by the devastating and magnificent Daniela Mack, the evening’s MVP. She has a voice like polished onyx: strong, dark, deep and gleaming. She stripped the first lady of her typical grace and glamour, wearing just a slip, sticking a needle in her leg; she was anxious, exhausted and melancholy. Her moving duet with her older self (a stunningly costumed Katharine Goeldner)—which becomes a trio, with Clara—includes Vavrek’s most piercing dialogue: Mrs. Kennedy, on the morning of November 22, 1963, asking Mrs. Onassis if her husband will love her everyday for the rest of his life.”

A Siren to Fire Partenope at S.F Opera

  • Robert Commanday, San Francisco Classical Voice

“Mack’s arias were strong and also virtuosic, befitting the trouser-role character. She has the opera’s single stop-time contemplative piece, an exquisite accompanied recitative that she sang lovingly.”

S.F. Opera review: ‘Partenope’ a fizzy, free-associative delight

  • Joshua Kosman, San Francisco Chronicle

“As Rosmira, mezzo-soprano Daniela Mack delivered a superb follow-up to her star turn in last season’s ‘Barber of Seville,’ delivering athletic, perfectly tuned coloratura and letting the audience feel viscerally the depth of the character’s ardor and pain.”

Color, flamboyance abound in ‘Carmen’

  • D.S. Crafts, Albuquerque Journal

“Carmen’s Seguidilla in the first act has in recent times become the vehicle for the singer to convey a maximum of sensuality. Daniela Mack matches a bounty of rounded curves with her sultry mezzo voice, dark enough to be rebellious yet bright enough to keep the character constantly intriguing. One can easily believe her seducing Don Jose into abandoning all sense of duty. No one will be able to claim this isn’t the ‘real Carmen’ in either voice or appearance.”

‘The Barber of Seville’ review: doubly engaging

  • Joshua Kosman, San Francisco Chronicle

Thursday’s cast also featured the terrific Rosina of mezzo-soprano Daniela Mack. Her appearance was not a company debut, but it might as well have been, given how thoroughly her artistry has blossomed since her days as an Adler Fellow. She sang with an irresistible combination of tonal luster and bravado, bringing energy and charm to her coloratura passages and delicate wit to her characterization.

Lyric Opera Baltimore presents lively concert of bel canto

  • Tim Smith, The Baltimore Sun

Mezzo Daniela Mack and tenor Alek Shrader brought admirable technique and sparkling personality to scenes from Rossini’s La Cenerentola and (joined by Belcher) Barbiere. Mack’s solo turn, “Pensa alla patria” from L’italiana in Algeri, showcased the singer’s burnished tone, evenly produced from top to bottom.

La Cenerentola

  • Mark Thomas Ketterson, Opera News

Daniela Mack boasted a lyrically appropriate instrument for the title role, with a goodly bit of heft in mid-range and an incisive gleam above the staff. Mack made a dazzling thing of the final rondo.

Opera review: Lights, camera, action on a savvy ‘Cinderella’

  • Lindsay Christians, 77 Square (Madison.com)

…Daniela Mack, the mezzo soprano in the title role, is exceptional. With a powerhouse instrument and the acting chops to match, Mack takes a character known even in fairy tales for being a doormat and gives her, quite literally, a voice. And what a voice! Her embellishments in solo arias and ensemble work sound stunning and effortless.

Onstage, mezzo-soprano Daniela Mack, along with baritone Liam Bonner… were compelling, delightful, and melodic, embracing their full ranges during lightning-quick tempo changes…

The young lovers, a sensual Daniela Mack (Nancy, the bakery girl) and a spry Liam Bonner (Sid, a butcher’s assistant), light up the stage as they lead Albert astray.

Review: ‘Albert Herring’

  • Robert Hofler, Variety

His salvation is a coronation cocktail (lemonade surreptitiously laced with rum) given to him by a horny young couple known as Sid and Nancy (no relation to the latter-day punksters), brilliantly sung and acted by Liam Bonner and Daniela Mack.

La Cenerentola

  • Opera News

Mezzo-soprano Daniela Mack, with her youthful good looks and pliable voice, was as a natural in the title role, handling Rossini’s bel canto writing with technical command and expressive ease. Expect other companies to come calling for her talents in this role.

Review: Opera Colorado’s witty “Cinderella” adaptation focuses on prince

  • Kyle MacMillan, Denver Post

In the anchoring romantic roles, mezzo-soprano Daniela Mack is a natural as Cinderella, combining youthful good looks with a lovely, supple voice that is strong and sure up and down her range. Perhaps most impressive, she brings appropriate dexterity and clarity to Rossini’s often challenging bel canto writing.

Mack has all the moves and the haughtiness of a girl who’s sexy, knows it and knows how to use it. ..Mack made her big, rich mezzo serve Isabella’s flirty, seductive ways.

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Daniela Mack appeared as Isabella…, singing with tremendous facility and a warm, colorful sound. She delivered vocal lines as naturally and convincingly as though speaking.

As Isabella, Daniela Mack’s voice was right at home in the generally low range of her role, singing with vibrant color. I would not be surprised to learn of her career rising substantially.
