MOT’s ‘Barber of Seville’ sparkles and soars

  • David Kiley

“Daniela Mack’s vocals are lovely, but her acting is even better as she plays Rosina as not quite the virginal waif we might think her to be, what with having a guardian. She is randy and embraces a ‘partner in crime” persona with Almaviva, but for a short time when she thinks he might have betrayed her.”

BLO’s ‘Barber of Seville’ a Comic and Musical Gem

  • Michael Hoban

“As Rosina, Daniela Mack is a marvel, shining in her first solo number, the cavatina, “Una voce poco fa” (“A voice a little while ago”) and later bringing down the house with the stunning aria in Act II, “Contro un cor”. She also has a real gift for comedy, as she masterfully combines an innocent sexuality with an expressive face as she defies her oppressive and lecherous ward.”

A BARBER of QUALITY

  • Beverly Creasey

“The ‘beauty’ is mezzo-soprano Daniela Mack, as Rosina, who delivers a triumphant Una Voce Poco Fa, as Rossini wrote it, in the original key! We know everything we need to know from that aria: She can be sweet if she wants, but do not cross her or you will feel her wrath. Her gorgeous top notes are surpassed only by her astonishing, comic low notes.”

Daniela Mack shines brightly in BLO’s zany “Barber of Seville”

  • Jonathan Blumhofer

“Vocally, Friday’s opening performance belonged to mezzo-soprano Daniela Mack. Making her company debut, Mack’s Rosina was a compelling, noble force of nature. Her tone was supple and technical command excellent, with Rossini’s coloratura flourishes (especially in ‘Une poco voce fa’ and “Contro un cor che accende amore”) firmly projected and precisely sung.”
