German Years 1994 - 1996

Having moved back to Vienna, Dominic began life in Europe in 1994 with a performance of Haydn’s Seasons (Die Jahreszeiten) in Aachen Eurogress on the 16th and 17th of March.

“D.N. the Lukas, delighted us with a beautiful tenorial sweetness and flexibly guided voice.” Alfred Beaujean AUZ Nr. 65, 18 March 1994

He has since had further performances of this work with soloists from Stuttgart Opera in Germany. Then it was straight to Rostock to debut as Tamino in Magic Flute where he had, on average, 3 performances a month from the end of May 1994 to July 1996. He also jumped in to several productions as Tamino, as well as touring extensively through the USA as Tamino with London City Opera in 2000.

“The singers who stood out were Dominic Natoli as Tamino”

His next tenor role was also to be Mozartian, Don Ottavio for the Gala Opening of the new Opera House in Hof in Germany on 23rd September 1994. They gathered a cast of guest singers from around the world, including Janet Perry singing her first Donna Anna, to celebrate this prestigious event. There were about 12 more performances in Hof before the production went on tour to some theatres surrounding Hof, including Bamberg and Bayreuth.

Dominic's next role saw a jump from Mozart to Wagner with Der Steuermann in Der Fliegende Holländer in Aachen.

"D.N. was the robustly tenorial Steuermann, who had as much to do running up and down the rope ladder as he did singing". AUZ nr. 73 Alfred Beaujean

Other performances in Germany were of Italian works, including Ismaele in Nabucco in the magnificent ruined Abbey at Bad Hersfeld in 1996, where the reviews were as follows:

"... an exceptionally warm voice" Karl Schönholtz in Hersfeld Zeitung."a grand performance" Gudrun Apel in Südthüringer Zeitung.
