Vienna Years

Vienna Conservatorium Opera Class staged a complete opera each year and took it on an extensive tour around the provincial theatres surrounding Vienna. In his first year there Dominic sang Figaro in Rossini’s Barber of Seville in German,(pictured below).

Press Reviews:

“Outstanding personality amongst the young artists was undoubtedly the Figaro, D.N.. With spark, lots of speed and, above all, vocal accuracy he mastered his role.”

“Star of the evening, the title role Figaro, DN, captured your heart with much voice and temperament. Simply delicious in all that encompasses dramatic stage presence as well as vocal quality”.

“The title role of Figaro was sung and acted by D. N. with the naturalness of a veteran. A magnificent performance!”

“D.N. gave his Figaro with lively acting and a first- class guided voice”

“As Figaro D.N. could pull out all the stops both vocally and dramatically. One believed him to be the factotum of the whole world”

 

In the following two years he performed Hermann and the Villains in Tales of Hoffmann, then in his final year he sang Sharpless in Madama Butterfly (pictured below). Sadly, the press from these performances has been lost.

 

In 1986 he graduated from the Conservatorium with honours, and went straight into a Vienna Kammeroper production of Paisiello’s Barber of Seville at Schloss Schönbrunn Theater (pictured below). He also sang many concerts of oratorio - Haydn Seasons, The Creation, even a baroque opera by Kaiser Leopold The prodigal son. All this as a baritone.
