Quoted as having “a lovely demeanor and irresistible creamy timbre” by Opera News, American soprano Danielle Pastin is gaining accolades from opera houses around the country.  In the 2021-22 Season, Pastin returned to Pittsburgh Opera in Carmen (Micaëla) and made her house and role debut in Gianni Schicchi (Nella) with Tulsa Opera. On the concert stage, she joined the Glacier Symphony for their Mozart and Mahler Spring Festival, with repertoire including Mozart’s Requiem and Mahler’s Liebst du um Schönheit. This season, she will also return to her role in Pagliacci (Nedda). She made her mainstage Metropolitan Opera debut in The Queen of Spades (Masha/Chloë, cover) and has since been invited back to perform in Pagliacci (Nedda), a new production of Massenet’s Manon (Javotte), Carmen (Frasquita), a role she also performed in her debut with the Dallas Opera, and Francesca da Rimini (Samaritana, cover).
