After leaving Melbourne at the age of 11 to conquer the world, soprano Danielle de Niese returns a star, feted in opera houses from New York to Glyndebourne, to make her professional debut in the country of her birth alongside the Australian Chamber Orchestra. The program includes Mozart’s Exsultate Jubilate, Schubert’s Death and the Maiden Quartet and more.

Danielle de Niese was born in Melbourne and won Young Talent Time aged 9, then moved to Los Angeles, won an Emmy and made her debut with the LA Opera aged 15. She has blossomed into one of the hottest properties in opera, enrapturing audiences in roles like Cleopatra, Euridice and Susanna at Glyndebourne, the Metropolitan Opera and on screen.

To celebrate her professional debut in her home country, De Niese sings a specially commissioned Australian work, which also marks the centenary of Australia’s Nobel laureate Patrick White. She also shines in Mozart's joyous Exsultate jubilate, matched with a flourish by a symphony from one of Mozart's early operas.

Schubert's haunting song, Death and the Maiden, is at the heart of Schubert’s famous and dramatic quartet.

“De Niese has a voice made for Mozart: bright, beautiful, agile and creamy.” National Public Radio

“The joy of singing radiates from her.” The Times
