Winner of a 2010 Grammy Award, baritone Daniel Belcher has performed in many of the world’s music capitals, including Paris, London, New York, San Francisco, Berlin, Stuttgart, Amsterdam, Geneva, Toronto, Tokyo, Seoul and Houston.  With a 50-role repertoire, Belcher has championed roles from the Baroque to those composed expressly for him.  He came to international attention in 2004 creating the role of Prior Walter in Peter Eötvös’ Angels in America for the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris and recently created the role of Robert Kennedy in Robin de Raaff’s Waiting for Miss Monroe for The Netherlands Opera and Holland Festival.  Other world premieres include John Brooke in Mark Adamo's Little Women (released on the Ondine label and recorded by PBS’ Great Performances), Andy Warhol in Michael Daugherty’s Jackie O (released by Decca on the Argo label) and Tod Machover’s  Resurrection (released on the Ondine label), all with Houston Grand Opera.  World premieres in development include Robert Aldridge and Herschel Garfein's Sister Carrie, Thomas Morse and Ken Cazan's Frau Schindler,  and The Scarlet Letter by Lori Laitman.  In 2014-15, he debuts in Norway at the Trondheim Chamber Music Festival with both Sombre and L'amour de Loin by Kaija Saariaho, returns to the Portland Opera for its 50th Anniversary season as Eisenstein in Die Fledermaus, Opera Colorado as Papageno in The Magic Flute, and Lyric Opera of Kansas City in his role debut as Father Palmer in Silent Night.
