New York, NY – On September 8th, 2009, Decca releases The Mozart Album, the hotly anticipated second solo recording from soprano Danielle de Niese. To celebrate the release, Danielle de Niese will be making two special appearances in New York City where she is in town to perform at the Metropolitan Opera as Susanna in Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro from September 22nd-October 9th. On September 10th, Van Cleef & Arpels will welcome Danielle de Niese to perform in their showroom as part of Vogue magazine’s Fashion’s Night Out, a global celebration of fashion with special events happening at designer showrooms throughout the city. On October 6th, Danielle de Niese will make a rare appearance off the opera stage at (le) Poisson Rouge in New York’s Greenwich Village to perform selections from The Mozart Album together with pianist Cameron Stowe.

An Australian–born American soprano of Dutch and Sri Lankan heritage, the exotically beautiful de Niese has been captivating audiences since childhood, when she was a fixture of Los Angeles local television hosting a weekly arts showcase for teenagers, for which she won an Emmy Award. De Niese was just 18 when she was accepted as the youngest artist ever into the Lindemann Young Artist Development Program of the Metropolitan Opera. She made her Met debut as Barbarina in Le nozze di Figaro, alongside Renée Fleming, Bryn Terfel, and Cecilia Bartoli and led by James Levine. On September 22nd of this year, de Niese returns to the Met to perform the leading role of Susanna in the same Jonathan Miller production of Le Nozze di Figaro in which she made her debut over a decade ago.

From the age of 19, when Danielle de Niese made that auspicious Metropolitan Opera debut it was clear that she was destined to be a major Mozart singer, given her extraordinary ability to communicate emotion through her beautiful crystalline voice, personal charisma, star quality and the irresistible force of her personality. So Mozart is a natural next step for de Niese in her recording career following up on her chart-topping debut album of Handel arias released in 2007. The selections on The Mozart Album reflect her career on stage, as well as her own favorite Mozart arias. De Niese was honored to work with Sir Charles Mackerras, a world authority on Mozart, who leads the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment.

In addition to her engagement with the Metropolitan Opera, the 2009-10 season sees Danielle de Niese performing as Susanna in Le nozze di Figaro with Lyric Opera of Chicago under the direction of Edward Gardner. She also sings the title roles in both L’incoronazione di Poppea with the Teatro Real and Semele with Théâtre des Champs Elysées. Additionally, Ms. de Niese will tour Europe with the period instrument group Il giardino armonico with an all Handel program with performances in Amsterdam, Vienna, Berlin and Madrid.
