Danielle de Niese on Soundcheck (Amy Pearl/WNYC)

Danielle de Niese made her debut at the Met when she was 19-years-old. She is still in her 20s and her voice may not be considered fully mature until she is in her late 30s.

"It's a wild ride, you know?" de Niese told Soundcheck HOst John Schaefer. "To be singing in the places that I'm singing in while my voice is still growing but I wouldn't change that because the experience of it is fantastic."

Watch the video below to hear her sing John Dowland's "What If I Never Speed."

Ms Deniese has a lovely voice and delivery — she reminds me of Kathleen Battle in her tonality and preciseness of delivery. She is also beautiful, I would love to see her acting and singing in a production, properly costumed (Sophie in Der Rosencavalier? for example). A wonderful "discovery", thank you Soundcheck!
