Are You Going to Santa Fe?

“Daniela Mack, as Isabella, is luminous both in her stage presence and her contralto, which is youthful and light.”


BWW Review: L’ITALIANA IN ALGERI at Santa Fe Opera


“Argentine mezzo Daniela Mack completed this opera’s trio of leading characters. Since the opera was updated from 1805 to the 1920s, she was a liberated woman who flew her own plane and landed it in an area of Algeria that had been invaded by the Turkish army. Mack cut a sexy, charismatic and energetic figure on stage. Her fast but clean coloratura was impressive, especially at the extremes of her range. She sang with a lean tone and dark vocal colors that made her voice unique.”


Rossinian romp: ‘L’italiana in Algeri’ at Santa Fe Opera

  • Santa Fe New Mexican

“Mezzo-soprano Daniela Mack, as Isabella, took control of the action like a glamorous but fearless protagonist sprung from a period photo-play.”


  • Opera News

“Daniela Mack’s outstandingly sung and acted Carmen anchored the whole production…Mack commanded one’s attention throughout, yet she did so in subtle ways. There were no hands on hips or plate-breaking; everything was based in characterful facial and body movement and in honest interaction with the others onstage. Her attractive, midweight mezzo was lovely, unexaggerated and focused on fluid, meaningfully shaped phrases.”


Daniela Mack Sizzles as Carmen for Opera Philadelphia

  • Rick Perdian

“Daniela Mack’s Carmen [was] a fiery gypsy femme fatale, whose voice smoldered as intensely as her gaze; men were putty in her hands. All her arias were tossed off with panache, but it was the Card Scene where her dark mezzo-soprano was shown off to full advantage. The Argentinean soprano had the style needed to wear a dazzling red flamenco dress that Don José shreds before slitting her throat in the final seconds of the opera.”
