Following last year’s Royal Opera House and the Metropolitan Opera debuts, Mack will tackle lead roles across top North American opera houses, including Washington National Opera, Opera Philadelphia, Seattle Opera, Santa Fe Opera, and Opéra de Montréal

The American mezzo-soprano will open the season by creating the title role of Kevin Puts’ Elizabeth Cree, which will receive its world premiere in September at Opera Philadelphia

For Immediate Release – Following a series of major opera house debuts last year, mezzo-soprano Daniela Mack is embarking on a 2017/18 season packed with lead roles across the top U.S. opera houses.

Daniela kicks off 2017/18 with the titular role in the world premiere of Elizabeth Cree at Opera Philadelphia (September 14 – 23) – an opera filled with “dreamy, seductive arias about butchery and woe,” New York magazine’s Justin Davidson wrote following a New York preview with the Crypt Sessions concert series. She then pivots from the modern to the Baroque, singing Bradamante in Alcina at Washington National Opera (November 4-19).

In the new year, the American mezzo-soprano will be reprising her role as Jacqueline Kennedy in JFK, a role she created, at Opéra de Montréal (January 27-30, February 1-3). She’ll then be making her Seattle Opera debut as Beatrice opposite her real-life husband Alek Shrader’s Benedict in Beatrice and Benedict (February 24-28, March 3-10).

Continuing her tour of powerful roles, Mack returns to Opera Philadelphia for Carmen in the spring (April 27-29, May 2-6), before heading to Santa Fe Opera in the summer to sing the lead role in The Italian Girl in Algiers (July 21-25, August 3-17).
