Bio
In 2013-2014, Daniel Scofield made several new house and role debuts. In the fall and winter, he was Danilo in The Merry Widow with Opera Columbus; and returned to California for Falstaff with Opera Santa Barbara, covering Falstaff, and singing Pistola; and his Opera San Jose debut as Masetto in Don Giovanni. In December, Daniel joined the Annapolis Opera in their season opening “Celebrate Opera” concert; and made his Carnegie Hall debut in Feuersnot with the American Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Leon Botstein. In summer, he performed Enrico in Lucia di Lammermoor with Southern Illinois Music Festival; and joined the ensemble of Fidelio at Santa Fe Opera. Current engagements include the Count in Le nozze di Figaro with Opera Columbus, and Valentin in Faust with Tri-Cities Opera.

In past seasons, Daniel Scofield performed Sonora in La fanciulla del West, and Falke in Die Fledermaus with Knoxville Opera; Sharpless in Madama Butterfly with Loon Opera; Joseph de Rocher in Dead Man Walking with Opera Fayetteville; and Tonio in Pagliacci in his debut with Opera Idaho. Daniel sang his first Count Almaviva in Le nozze di Figaro with Pacific Opera Project in Los Angeles, garnering reviews stating, “it is Scofield’s powerful baritone that drives the action.”

Daniel was Wagner in a new production of Faust with Arizona Opera, as well as Prince Yamadori in Madame Butterfly. As a resident artist, he performed the role of Ben in The Telephone, as well as Albert in Werther. He covered Sharpless, Silvio, Alfio, and Valentin with Arizona Opera, and participated in recitals ranging from art song to music theater.

In 2010-2011, Daniel apprenticed at Seattle Opera where he was seen as Mamma Agatha in Viva la mamma, and Fiorello in Il barbiere di Siviglia. After finishing his apprenticeship, he returned to Indianapolis Opera to perform Baron Douphol in La traviata.

A native of Binghamton, NY, Daniel has performed with Seattle Opera, Indianapolis Opera, Opera Cleveland, Brevard Music Center, Central City Opera, Wolf Trap Opera, and Augusta Opera. He has studied at the Cleveland Institute of Music with Dean Southern, as well as Indiana University, under the instruction of Timothy Noble. Mr. Scofield is winner of several prizes, including the District and Regional Encouragement Awards from the Metropolitan Opera Council, and the Albert Rees Davis Scholarship from the Cleveland Singers Club. He was also a semi-finalist in the Palm Beach Opera Competition.
