Nicholas Tamagna is a countertenor of rare quality who is quickly establishing himself on the world’s opera stages. As a Händel specialist, he has conquered such roles as Giulio Cesare, Orlando and Polinesso. His flawless technique, seamless registration, clarity of diction, and dramatic versatility have won him critical acclaim in a wide range of repertoire.

In 2017/18, Mr. Tamagna appears with Nederlandse Reisopera and at Staatstheater Oldenburg (Germany) in the title role of Hasse’s Siroe, Re di Persia (December 2017 – April 2018), with Opera Omaha as the Refugee in the company premiere of Jonathan Dove’s Flight (April 2017), and with the Spoleto Festival USA as Pompeo in Vivaldi’s Farnace (May-June 2017).

In 2016/17 he will sing the alto solo in Vivaldi’s Stabat Mater in a dance production with Malandain Ballet Biarritz at Opéra de Rouen in France. In New York at Merkin Hall, he sang Goffredo in Rinaldo with operamission, and with One World Symphony he performed the title role in Sung Jin Hong’s Hannibal. He again joined early music ensemble, Le Poème Harmonique on tour as the Spirit in Dido and Aeneas and as the vocal soloist in To be or not to be, a Purcell/Shakespeare pastiche, performing at Opéra de Haute-Normandie Rouen, Opéra Royal de Versailles, and Opéra de Vichy.

In 2014/15, he returned to the Händel-Festspiele in Karlsruhe, Germany as Oronte in Händel’s Riccardo Primo, where he made his European debut the previous year. At Theater Münster he performed Polinesso in Ariodante, and débuted at the Royal Opera House at Covent Garden as Hassan in Zaid Jabri’s Cities of Salt.

During the 2012/13 season, Nicholas Tamagna triumphed as Akhnaten with Indianapolis Opera, from which a filmed version was broadcast. In New York, he performed the role of Ottone in l’Incoronazione di Poppea at Symphony Space, the title role in the North American premiere of Händel’s Rodrigo with operamission, and Pisandro in Monteverdi’s Il Ritorno d’Ulisse in Patria with Opera Omnia. In recent seasons, he has performed the title role in Endimione/Pane in Cavalli’s La Calisto (NY), Cesare/Tolomeo in Giulio Cesare, re d’Egitto (Washington DC/London, Ontario, Canada), the Witch in Hansel and Gretel (NY), Farnace in Mozart’s Mitridate, Re di Ponto (NY), the Duchess in The Gondoliers (NY), Prince Orlofsky in Die Fledermaus (NY), Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice (Memphis), the Sorceress in Dido and Aeneas (NY and Rouen, France), and Ruggiero in Alcina (NY).

Mr. Tamagna is featured on DVD as the Spirit in Dido and Aeneas (2015, Outhere Music), with Canadian early music ensemble ¡Sacabuche! in performances of unpublished works of the Italian Baroque (2015, ATMA Classique), and soon to be released recording Son of England: Music of Henry Purcell and Jeremiah Clarke (2017, Alpha Classics) with Le Poème Harmonique Orchestra. An active concert soloist, He has sung in renowned venues including Philharmonie de Paris (France), Carnegie Hall, Merkin Hall, Avery Fischer Hall, and the Bozar in Bruxelles (Belgium).
