The Mexican baritone is a great favorite at the renowned Berlin State Opera, appearing there in leading roles of Rossini, Verdi, Tchaikovsky, Gounod, Massenet, and Puccini. Acclaimed Verdi portrayals in other venues include Stankar/Stiffelio and Francesco Moor/I masnadieri (both at Berlin’s Konzerthaus), Ford/Falstaff (Hamburg, Bologna), and Germont/La traviata (Hamburg, Tokyo). Also in Europe, Daza has sung roles as diverse as Dandini/La cenerentola (Rome), Sir Robert Cecil/Britten’s Gloriana (Hamburg), Scarpia/Tosca and Hermann/Catalani’s Loreley (both in St. Gallen, Switzerland). The baritone began his international career at age 21 as an Adler Fellow at San Francisco Opera. Since then, he has been heard throughout America, including Marcello/La bohème at New York City Opera (including a PBS “Live from Lincoln Center” telecast) and Washington National Opera (where he has also sung Rossini’s Figaro); Guglielmo/Così fan tutte at Michigan Opera Theater; and Figaro, Zurga, Marcello, Ping/Turandot, and Tadeo Cespedes/Lee Holdridge’s Dulce Rosa at LA Opera. Daza can be seen on DVD as Belcore/The Elixir of Love (productions from both Glyndebourne Festival Opera and Mexico’s Opera de Bellas Artes) and Lescaut/Manon (Berlin State Opera).
