Acclaimed countertenor and CCM alumnus David Daniels (BM, 1990) was the topic of discussion on NPR’s Morning Edition today, as Renée Montagne and Miles Hoffman previewed Theodore Morrison’s new opera Oscar, which premieres Saturday at the Santa Fe Opera with Daniels in the title role. Based on the life of Irish writer and poet Oscar Wilde, Morrison wrote Oscar specifically for Daniels.

A 2012 Opera News Awards recipient, Daniels returned to CCM last September for a master class. He sang the title role in the Metropolitan Opera’s new production of Giulio Cesare earlier this year.
