Danielle Marcelle Bond – Mezzo-soprano

Danielle Marcelle Bond has recently released her debut album O Come, You Spirits Of Death: Halloween Tales of Gore & Folklore with pianist Milena Gligic. She sang in the 2023 LA Art Week in a performance piece by Tara Subkoff. She has been seen as Hannah After in Laura Kaminsky’s As One which the Gazettes called “extraordinary” with “intense singing and acting performances”. 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 the operatic solo for Beyonce’s Grammy performance that year.

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. 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.

Other roles include Dido in Dido & Aeneas, Hermia in Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Tisbe in Cenerentola, Siebel in Faust, Olga in Eugene Onegin, Third Lady in Die Zauberflute, Cornelia in Handel’s Giulio Cesare, Paquette in CandideAmahl’s Mother, Flora in La traviata, Reporter in the world premiere of Stephen Schwartz’s Séance on a Wet Afternoon for Opera Santa Barbara. Ms. Bond debuted in Germany as Maddalena in Rigoletto with Opera Classica Europa.
