Daniela Mack


Vocalists — Mezzo-Soprano

"The greatest of these went to Jackie, sung by the devastating and magnificent Daniela Mack, the evening’s MVP. She has a voice like polished onyx: strong, dark, deep and gleaming. She stripped the first lady of her typical grace and glamour, wearing just a slip, sticking a needle in her leg; she was anxious, exhausted and melancholy. Her moving duet with her older self (a stunningly costumed Katharine Goeldner)—which becomes a trio, with Clara—includes Vavrek’s most piercing dialogue: Mrs. Kennedy, on the morning of November 22, 1963, asking Mrs. Onassis if her husband will love her everyday for the rest of his life." —Henry Stewart, Opera News, April 23, 2016 - Jacqueline Kennedy in 'JFK' at Fort Worth Opera

“As Rosmira, mezzo-soprano Daniela Mack delivered a superb follow-up to her star turn in last season’s “Barber of Seville,” delivering athletic, perfectly tuned coloratura and letting the audience feel viscerally the depth of the character’s ardor and pain.” —Joshua Kosman, San Francisco Chronicle, October 16, 2014 - Rosmira in 'Partenope' at San Francisco Opera

“Carmen’s Seguidilla in the first act has in recent times become the vehicle for the singer to convey a maximum of sensuality. Daniela Mack matches a bounty of rounded curves with her sultry mezzo voice, dark enough to be rebellious yet bright enough to keep the character constantly intriguing. One can easily believe her seducing Don Jose into abandoning all sense of duty. No one will be able to claim this isn’t the “real Carmen” in either voice or appearance.” —D.S. Crafts, Albuquerque Journal, June 28, 2014 - Title role in 'Carmen' at Santa Fe Opera

“Argentinian Daniela Mack might have scored highest on points: a purringly elegant BMW of a singer, with perfect legato in Gounod’s “O ma lyre”…I would deem her the finished article.” —Rupert Christiansen, The Telegraph, June 24, 2013 - BBC Cardiff Singer of the World Finals
