"I'm not sure how it happens, but somehow in the midst of conducting a performance, the conductor can feel it in the back of his neck if the public is really enjoying the singer. It relaxes everybody and takes the whole performance to a higher level. When Dan Mobbs is in the cast, that good feeling is guaranteed. Not only does he sing well, but other people seem to sing better around him."
Will Crutchfield, Director of Opera, Caramoor
American bass-baritone Daniel Mobbs has won praise on both sides of the Atlantic for his "solid, resonant voice and boundless energy...his stage presence virtually ensured that he was the focal point of nearly every scene in which he appeared," as written in the New York Times. He has performed repertory with major opera companies all over the world, including the Metropolitan Opera, Boston Lyric Opera, Los Angeles Opera, New York City Opera, Pittsburgh Opera, the Caramoor International Music Festival, Washington Concert Opera, Minnesota Opera, Opera Philadelphia, Portland Opera, Washington National Opera, and others.
With seven roles and 18 years of experience with Portland Opera, Daniel has joined their Artistic Department as "Teaching Artist in Residence," training and advising the members of the Portland Opera Resident Artist Program.
Variously described by the press as having "a rich, mellifluous voice" (The New York Times), and a "clean, clear baritone" that "was a virile delight" (Palm Beach Daily News), Daniel Mobbs' "lightning-quick presence and bright, clean sound" (Opera News) and "elegant, cavernous tones" (Variety) are certain to keep delighting audiences for the foreseeable future.
