DIANA DANIEL, soprano
In 2010, the young soprano had her Carnegie Hall solo debut with the concert Route to Brazil. Also in New York City she was the principal soloist in The First of Love, a new opera by Ursula Kwong-Brown, which premiered at Miller Theater in 2009.
Other opera roles have included Laetitia in The Old Maid and the Thief and Lucy in The Telephone at Capela Santa Maria, Brazil; Flora in La Traviata, Virginia in Zenamon's O Fantasma de Canterville, Zerlina in Don Giovanni, and Chip in Menotti's Chip and his Dog at Teatro Guaira, Brazil; and Zulma in L'Italiana in Algeri at Teatro Comunale di Adria, Italy.
Diana sang the role of Cleofe in the oratorio La Resurrezione at St. George's Church during the 2008 London Handel Festival, for which her singing was deemed 'excellent' in The Independent. She has also performed in chamber concerts with the Royal College of Music's New Perspectives Ensemble, and members of the Salzburg Chamber Soloists.
Ms. Daniel has a Bachelor's degree from the Boston Conservatory, a Graduate Diploma from the Royal College of Music, and a Professional Studies Diploma from Mannes College of Music, and is a student of Arthur Levy.
Diana is featured in journalist and fashion photographer Ana Clara Garmendia's first book, Retratos, launched this past December in Brazil.
The book is a collection of portraits shot in Curitiba, Paris, New York and Rio de Janeiro.
