Daniel Snodgrass, Lyric Baritone

downloadable PDF resume and bio

Daniel Snodgrass is quickly establishing himself internationally as the acting baritone with an equally beautiful voice such as he has showcased with the roles of  Malatesta in Don Pasquale and Belcore in Elisir d'Amore at the Miami Lyric Opera. He also experienced a huge triumph in the role of Riccardo in I Puritani at Riuniti Opera. The 2008-2009 season will find him performing his first Silvio in Opera Seabrook's new main stage production of I Pagliacci . He will repeat his Silvio with the Opera Company of South Jersey in their production of I Pagliacci . In June, Mr. Snodgrass performed Silvio in I Pagliacci in Concert receiving the highest marks for his flawless artistry. Of his Malatesta in Don Pasquale ,  the Miami Herald said, " Daniel Snodgrass ...has a big, febrile baritone, with striking agility" and the Sun-Sentinel wrote, " Daniel Snodgrass provided the most elegant singing of the evening as an amusing Malatesta ."  Mr. Snodgrass performed the roles of Schaunard in La Bohème with both the Miami Lyric and Treasure Coast Opera where he has also performed Baron Douphol in La Traviata with Anton Coppola conducting,  Lucas in The Student Prince , and Cascada in The Merry Widow with Faith Esham as Hanna. In past seasons, Mr. Snodgrass has also sung the roles of Nilakantha in Lakmé and Dr. Falke in Die Fledermaus .

Equally at home in the oratorio repertoire, Daniel Snodgrass is a favorite of the Miami

Oratorio Society and has been soloist in Fauré's Requiem , Gaul 's Holy City , Mendelsohn's Elijah , and Händel's Creation all to very favorable review.  He has also been the soloist in both the Puccini and Schubert Masses , Mozart's Requiem and Regina Coeli, and Händel's Messiah with orchestras in Indianapolis , IN and Washington , DC . With his performance of Joey in Most Happy Fella at Key West 's Island Opera, the reviewer wrote, ďAs the handsome cad Joey, Daniel Snodgrass oozed testosterone and sings with a voice that could melt butter."   With equal success, Daniel Snodgrass has also appeared as Emile de Becque in South Pacific .

In the coming season, Mr. Snodgrass has been hand-selected to portray the role of Eddy in Carly Simon's Metropolitan Opera commissioned work Romulus Hunt at the Gusman Center in Miami .  Ms. Simon will be in attendance for rehearsals in addition to the gala and performances which are to benefit several charities and will be receiving television coverage and will involve a number of international celebrities.
