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.”



  • 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.”

  • 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.”

“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

  • Maria Nockin

“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.”
