Danielle Marcelle Bond
Danielle Marcelle Bond has recently been seen as Hannah After in Laura Kaminsky’s As One which the Gazettes called “extraordinary” with “intense singing and acting performances” and Maddalena in Opera Las Vegas’ Rigoletto. She was part of the Grammy Award winning cast for 2017’s Best Opera Recording as Witness 3 in LA Opera’s Ghosts of Versailles and sang on the Grammy award event in 2017.
She has been hailed by the LA Times with a “Brava!” for her performance as Swiss Grandmother/Austrian Woman/British Dancing Girl in Long Beach Opera’s production of John Adams’ Death of Klinghoffer. As Marilyn Monroe in the US premiere of Marilyn Forever, Opera News says “Bond played the more private Monroe in a recognizable way, sensuous, nervous, making love to the camera. She sang sumptuously, expressively.” She has charmed audiences in roles such as Carmen, for which Singerpreneur praised her “luscious voice that filled the theater, her intense middle voice ringing with the freedom of her technique.” A special honor for Ms. Bond was when she premiered the role of Lady of the Charts in Kenneth Wells’ opera The Center Cannot Hold, dramatizing the intensely profound memoir of Dr. Elyn Saks’s journey with schizophrenia.
Other roles include Dido in Dido & Aeneas, Hermia in Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Siebel in Faust, Olga in Eugene Onegin, Cornelia in Handel’s Giulio Cesare, Paquette in Candide, Amahl’s Mother, Flora in La Traviata, Reporter in the world premiere of Stephen Schwartz’s Séance on a Wet Afternoon for Opera Santa Barbara and Witness in LA Opera’s much loved & Grammy nominated Ghosts of Versailles. Ms. Bond debuted in Germany as Maddalena in Rigoletto with Opera Classica Europa.
Solo concert work includes Verdi’s Requiem, JS Bach’s Mass in B Minor, the Magnificats of JS & CPE Bach, Handel’s Messiah and Dvorak’s Stabat Mater. Ms. Bond also uses her vocal & musical skills for film, TV and video game scores, as a voice over artist, as well as being a film/commercial actress, performing with the improv troupe Not FRIENDS.
