Daniels made his Glimmerglass debut in 1994 at the start of his career as Nero in L’Incoronazione di Poppea and returned for leading roles in Tamerlano in 1995 and Partenope in 1998. This summer, the countertenor returns to Glimmerglass Opera for a concert with pianist Kevin Miller, which will benefit the summer opera company. Daniels will perform works by Reynaldo Hahn, Charles Gounod, George F. Handel, Hector Berlioz and Steven Kohn.
“Glimmerglass Opera has a very special place in my heart, as I consider this my operatic home,” Daniels said. “I am deeply honored to return for this wonderful event.”
Daniels has performed leading roles at the Metropolitan Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, San Francisco Opera, Santa Fe Opera, Washington National Opera, Houston Grand Opera, Teatro alla Scala, Bayerische Staatsoper, Covent Garden and Glyndebourne Festival. He has recently been seen in recital in Frankfurt, Tampere, Finland, Paris, Belgrade, Berlin, London’s Wigmore Hall and the Prinzregententheater in Munich. Daniels is featured on many Virgin Classics recordings, including Bach: Sacred Arias and Cantatas and Pergolesi: Stabat Mater.
