This summer future engagements take him once again to the Castle Festival Schloss Kirchstetten, where he portrays the title part of Rossini's SIGNOR BRUSCHINO.


Klassikfestival Schloss Kirchstetten – La Cenerentola – DON MAGNIFICIO
Where as Daniele Macciantelli’s Don Magnificio was the personification of scurrility, due to his richly theatrical talents and his solid, dark bass voice. Besides, he masters the almost forgotten declamation art of the Italian buffo tradition and he reminds at the great masters of his repertoire.

Festspiele Schloss Kirchstetten – Il Signor Bruschino - BRUSCHINO
Both leading roles are sung by the Italian bass baritones Emilio Narcucci as Gaudendzio and Daniele Macciantelli in the title role. These two are experienced, vocally powerful singers and smooth comedian customers. It is a great pleasure to watch these musical arch-comedians play and hear them sing.

One truly gets the impression that Daniele Macciantelli grew up with Belcanto. His bass voice is melodious, he manages to sing a tremendous amount of syllables in a minimum of time and just loves daffing. In “ Per unfiglio già pentito” , one of Rossini’s genius ideas, in which a bass, a baritone and a tenor sing in trio, it seems as if the deepest voice has to master the biggest amount of text. The bravos and the applause at the end of the aria are well deserved.

As a contrast, the impressive bass voice of Daniele Macciantelli as Basilio – stoic, unshakable, prepared to change sides to his own advantage, he effortlessly succeeds in drawing a portrayal of this unstable hero, developing his own presence.
With his demonic performance Daniele Macciantelli (Basilio) , whose huge, darkly colored bass voice is really ideal for the famous defamation aria, makes not only doctor Bartolo tremble.

The mighty character bass Daniele Macciantelli as Mustafa is one of those verbal acrobats , who because of his mother tongue has a natural gift for eloquence. When he measures himself in rapid singing with his slave Lindoro, things really take off.
Skilfully theatrical and with a dry bass timbre Daniele Macciantelli overdrew Mustafa’s testosterone surplus.
