Daniel Bubeck‘s official biography says it all:
Acclaimed American countertenor Daniel Bubeck has emerged as a singer of international distinction in opera and oratorio from the baroque to contemporary masterpieces. Mr. Bubeck made his professional debut to critical acclaim in the world premiere of John Adams’s El Niño, directed by Peter Sellars and conducted by Kent Nagano at the Théâtre Musical de Paris-Châtelet. He has since performed the work on four continents in over 20 different productions with such esteemed orchestras as Boston Symphony, BBC Symphony, Deutsches Symphonie Orchester-Berlin, and Tokyo Symphony.
A noted Handelian, Mr. Bubeck has interpreted and covered operatic and oratorio roles including the title roles in Giulio Cesare and Solomon as well as David (Saul), Guido (Flavio) and Tauride (Arianna in Creta) for companies including New York City Opera and Orchestra of St. Luke’s.
