Additionally, he made his début with Austin Opera as Marullo in Rigoletto, gave a master class and recital at Lee University, where he performed art songs by Mussourgsky, Britten, Poulenc, and Milhaud with fellow Tanglewood alumna Dr. ChoEun Lee, and performed in the workshop of The Halloween Tree with American Lyric Theater. McDonald has performed as Junius in The Rape of Lucretia as a guest artist with CUNY Queens; the Traveler in Curlew River with the Mark Morris Dance Group at Brooklyn Academy of Music; and made several appearances as baritone soloist with New York City Ballet, including Bernstein’s Dybbuk, Stravinsky’s Les Noces, and Brahms’s Liebeslieder Walzer.
