Countertenor ​Nicholas Tamagna ​has garnered widespread acclaim for his commanding yet expressive vocal timbre and breathtaking musicianship as well as superb acting skills, establishing himself as a leading countertenor in his generation. In 2018 ​he made his debut at Theater an der Wien and Victoria Teatru in Gliwice, Poland with Parnassus Arts Productions in a special concert presentation of Gismondo, Re di Polonia by Leo Vinci, in the role of Ermanno. He also joins Parnassus for a new production of Il Pastor Fido as Silvio to be performed in Bad Lauchstädt, Germany in April 2019, as well as several other projects planned for 2020 and 2021. In the USA, Tamagna can be heard at the Florentine Opera Company in Milwaukee, WI, USA in their upcoming production of L’incoronazione di Poppea as Ottone in Spring 2019. He will join Nederlandse Reisopera for their production of Monteverdi’s Orfeo in 2020-2021 and Oldenburgisches Staatstheater to be announced soon.

​In 2017-18, Mr. Tamagna toured in a much-acclaimed co-production of Hasse’s Siroe, Re di Persia with the Nederlandse Reisopera in eight cities in the Netherlands and at the Oldenburgisches Staatstheater in Germany in the title role. He also made his debut with the Musikfestpiele Potsdam at the Sanssouci Palace as Amore in a production of the little-known opera L’Europa by Alessandro Melani, in a special reworked theatrical presentation in the Ovidgallerie.

In the 2016 – 2017 season, Mr. Tamagna made his Spoleto Festival USA debut as Pompeo in the North-American Premiere of Vivaldi’s Il Farnace and Opera Omaha’s premiere of Jonathan Dove’s Flight in the role of the Refugee, directed by James Darrah. In Europe, Mr. Tamagna returned to France as the Spirit in Dido and Aeneas with Opéra de Haute-Normandie Rouen with the early music ensemble Le Poème Harmonique also touring to l’Opéra Royal de Versailles and Opéra de Vichy, during which he also recorded an album on the Alpha Classics label entitled “Son of England: Music of Jeremiah Clarke and Henry Purcell.” He joined le Poème Harmonique once more in 2017 in a reprise of “To be or not to be: A Pastiche of Purcell and Shakespeare” in his debut at the Philharmonie de Paris (Paris, France). Nicholas Tamagna collaborated with Opéra de Haute-Normandie Rouen for a special dance presentation of Vivaldi’s Stabat Mater with Malandain Biarritz Ballet. Tamagna made his Carnegie Hall debut in New York as soloist in Bach’s Magnificat BMW 243 and in the world premiere of Jonathan Breit‘s Zippelfagottist with The Cecilia Chorus of New York and Orchestra. He had the special honor of joining David Kram, former conductor for Opera Australia, in a special outdoor presentation of Philip Glass’s Akhnaten as Akhnaten with the Melbourne Consort and MGS Productions. He first sang Akhnaten with Indianapolis Opera in 2013.
