Best of 2017: 11 Singers Who Made 2017 A Year To Remember!

  • Francisco Salazar

“The mezzo-soprano began her year with her Metropolitan Opera debut in a new production of “Rusalka” before headlining productions of “La Cenerentola” at the Arizona Opera and “Alcina” at the Washington National Opera and Santa Fe Opera. She also made headlines and galas with the New York Philharmonic and in Opera Louisiane. But perhaps her biggest accomplishment of the year was her work in “Elizabeth Cree.” Mack not only headlined the opening night of Opera Philadelphia’s season, but also world premiered Kevin Puts opera, which received glowing reviews.”

  • Parterre

“Statuesque and boasting a voice with the rich color and firmness (in both line and technique) of mahogany, Mack provided dramatic propulsion the performance needed. Her fiery “È gelosia” was absolutely a highlight of the evening.”


Review: ‘Alcina’ at The Washington National Opera

  • DC Metro Theater Arts

“Mezzo-Soprano Daniela Mack was captivating portraying the feisty and nimble character of Bradamante–singing beautifully and adding many lively specific physical touches to the proceedings.”



  • Voix des Arts

“Argentine-born mezzo-soprano Daniela Mack is rapidly garnering recognition as one of her generation’s most talented and versatile singers. Blessed with beauty of voice and appearance, she is poised to achieve a level of stardom rare for opera singers in the years since the death of Luciano Pavarotti… Her portrayal of Bradamante in WNO’s Alcina provided abundant evidence of her boundless aptitude for lifting music and words off of the page and projecting them to audiences with singing of tremendous immediacy… With acting as appropriate to the role as her singing was to the music, Mack gave this Alcina its conscience.”

Whether singing an aria of her own or just standing there silently while others sing to her, Mack commands attention in a performance that is likely to lead to larger stages… Mack handles all the different aspects of the mercurial Elizabeth with complete mastery.”


Murder She Wrote: Elizabeth Cree launch Opera Philadelphia’s Fall Festival

  • Bachtrack

“Daniela Mack was a dazzlingly vibrant Elizabeth, her angry mezzo-soprano coloratura indicating her character’s imbalance from the first. Her voice dominated the theatre with ease, just as her persona dominated the action, inveigling her way into the musical hall, into ‘respectable’ marriage complete with trailing purple bustle, into murder.”



  • Opera News

“In the title role, Daniela Mack shone wonderfully, her rich yet agile mezzo coping masterfully with rangy writing that incorporated aspects of her Handel and Rossini-honed technique. Her clear, expressive diction lent poignance to Elizabeth’s plight.”
