About the Show

Sweet Airs that Bring Delight is part of Opera memphis' 2016 Midtown Opera Festival and City-Wide Celebrations of shakespeare's at 400.

Bass-Baritone Dan Mobbs lends his rich voice to Shakespeare-inspired song and opera at the Beethoven Club in Midtown Memphis. Celebrate the Bard's 400th birthday with us as we honor the stories, characters, and lyrics that have captured the imaginations and hearts of readers, composers, librettists, and audiences alike for centuries. If music be the food of love, sing on!

American bass-baritone Daniel Mobbs has won praise on both sides of the Atlantic for his "solid, resonant voice and boundless energy...his stage presence virtually ensured that he was the focal point of nearly every scene in which he appeared," as written in the New York Times. He has performed repertory with major opera companies all over the world, including the Metropolitan Opera, Boston Lyric Opera, Los Angeles Opera, New York City Opera, Pittsburgh Opera, the Caramoor International Music Festival, Washington Concert Opera, Minnesota Opera, Opera Philadelphia, Portland Opera, Washington National Opera, and others. Variously described by the press as having "a rich, mellifluous voice" (The New York Times), and a "clean, clear baritone" that "was a virile delight" (Palm Beach Daily News), Daniel Mobbs' "lightning-quick presence and bright, clean sound" (Opera News) and "elegant, cavernous tones" (Variety) are certain to keep delighting audiences for the foreseeable future.
