Danielle de Niese's early career was astonishing, impressive and risky at the same time. After all, rarely any singer has an opportunity to debut on the professional stage at the age of 15 (in Los Angeles Opera!), and four years later sing at the Metropolitan Opera in New York as Barbarina in Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro under the baton of James Levine, alongside Renée Fleming and Cecilia Bartoli? After such brilliant starts, the careers of many child prodigies ended suddenly and the promising young stars are now nowhere to be seen. Danielle de Niese, however, seized her opportunity and, with the strength of her talent and personality, she stayed on the very top, which she reached so early on in her life. Starting as a wunderkind, she became a mature and conscious artist who returned to MET many times – including in her outstanding role as Cleopatra, which brought her true fame and popularity, especially after she reprised it in 2005 at the Glyndebourne Festival. Recital of Danielle de Niese at the Opera Rara Festival is a testimony to her universal musical interests, as well as freedom and sense of style with which she is able to perform a very diverse repertoire.
