Seattle Opera’s ‘Beatrice and Benedict,’ entertaining, if not perfect

  • Maggie Larrick

“Alek Shrader and Daniela Mack had delectable chemistry on opening night as the swaggering Benedict and feisty Beatrice. Initially one-upping each other with clever barbs as comfortably as habit, they displayed a lovely vulnerability as they fall in love. Mack’s dusky mezzo had superb agility and reach, and Shrader had a warmly expansive tenor.”


Poignant opera on the Kennedy family debuts in Canada

  • Avleen Mokha

“Mack’s impeccable performance communicates Jackie’s struggles with the loss of her two children, Arabella and Patrick, while trying to establish a sense of intimacy with her distant husband. Her monologues are rife with imagery of loss, as she mourns the pain of an empty crib.”


JFK: L’étrange rêve de Monsieur Jack

  • Caroline Rodgers

“Les chanteurs sont tous à la hauteur, en particulier la mezzo-soprano Daniela Mack, dont on peut dire qu’elle porte une grande partie de la production sur ses épaules. Elle transmet magistralement et avec émotion la musique de Little, qui lui a donné un rôle fort mais difficile ainsi que les plus beaux airs.”


Mezzo-soprano Daniela Mack on Elizabeth Cree and her love of opera

  • Trevor Gillis

“Mezzo-soprano Daniela Mack is having one of those seasons that opera singers dream of: a run of a new opera that received rave reviews, role and house debuts at major opera houses, and the title role in Carmen at one of the great U.S. houses. I am so pleased that, despite her hectic schedule, Daniela was willing to answer a few of my questions about her current season, her background, and her love of the art form.”


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.”

  • Kati Harrison

Washington National Opera’s first ever production of Handel’s Alcina is running now through Sunday, November 19th in the Eisenhower Theater at the Kennedy Center.  Mezzo-soprano Daniela Mack spoke with me about the production, her challenging double role in the opera, and her love of Handel.


girl power

  • 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.”
