Daniel Biaggi


Opera General Director Appointed to OPERA America
Board of Directors

Palm Beach Opera supporter elected Chairman;
Director of Marketing & PR is Marketing Network Chair

Palm Beach Opera General Director Daniel Biaggi was elected to the Board of Directors of OPERA America, the national nonprofit service organization for opera, during the organization's Annual Business Meeting, which took place during Opera Conference 2012 in Philadelphia in June.

"OPERA America has been instrumental in providing advocacy and expertise to US opera companies over the past 40 years, and President/CEO Marc Scorca took a keen interest in my own professional development" said Biaggi. "I am thrilled to join the Board of Directors and to become part of this illustrious group of cultural leaders at a time when opera tradition and preservation of values must go hand in hand with innovation and continuous reinvention."
The Annual Business Meeting also saw Palm Beach Opera supporter and Metropolitan Opera Trustee Frayda B. Lindemann, Ph.D. elected Chairman, making this the first time in the history of OPERA America that an opera company trustee, rather than a general director, will lead the Board.

In addition to Mr. Biaggi, other newly elected members are: James Feldman (Board President, Washington National Opera), William Florescu (General Director, Florentine Opera Company), Christopher Hahn (General Director, Pittsburgh Opera), Barbara Leirvik (opera patron), Susan F. Morris (Board Chairman, The Santa Fe Opera), Esther Nelson (General and Artistic Director, Boston Lyric Opera) and Francesca Zambello (Artistic and General Director, The Glimmerglass Festival).

"I am very pleased to welcome eight outstanding new members to our Board," said OPERA America President/CEO Marc A. Scorca. "Each of these individuals, representing the administrative, business, governance and artistic spheres of our industry, brings a different set of valuable skills to OPERA America."

Mr. Biaggi joins Palm Beach Opera Director of Marketing & PR Ceci Dadisman in a leadership role with OPERA America.  Ceci has served as the organization's Marketing Network Chair since 2010.

Experience, NYIOP pre-selection auditions in New York, Berlin and Zurich, and has been Advisor and Judge for the National Society of Arts and Letters Local Florida Chapter Competition.

Prior to his engagement at the Palm Beach Opera, Daniel Biaggi was Associate Director at Guy Barzilay International Artist Management in New York, co-managing the careers of over 40 singers worldwide. He has served on the faculties of Manhattan School of Music, Mannes College of Music, and Sarah Lawrence College in New York, coaching singers in operatic and art song repertoire with an emphasis on languages and diction.
