Nicholas Tamagna
Countertenor
Nicholas Tamagna is a countertenor of rare quality who is quickly establishing himself on
the world’s opera stages. Specializing in Händelian repertoire, he has conquered such roles
as Giulio Cesare, Orlando and Polinesso. His exquisite technique, seamlessly calibrated
registration, clarity of diction, and dramatic versatility have won him critical acclaim and
given him opportunities in a wide range of repertoire.
In 2014/15, Mr. Tamagna 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 Royal Opera
House at Covent Garden as Hassan in Zaid Jabri’s Cities of Salt. With early music
ensemble Le Poème Harmonique, he reprised the role of the Spirit in Dido and Aeneas at
the Bozar in Bruxelles. Having performed this role with the company previously at Opéra
de Haute-Normandie Rouen and Opéra Royal de Versailles, he will join them in a touring
revival production in 2016/17 at both companies again, in addition to Opéra de Vichy.
During the 2012/13 season, Nicholas Tamagna triumphed as the title character in Philip
Glass’ rarely performed opera 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, Mr. Tamagna has performed the title role in Händel’s Serse, Pane in
Cavalli’s La Calisto, Cesare and Tolomeo in Giulio Cesare, the Witch in Hansel and Gretel,
Farnace in Mozart’s Mitridate, the Duchess in The Gondoliers, Prince Orlofsky in Die
Fledermaus, Gluck’s Orpheus, the Sorceress in Dido and Aeneas, and Ruggiero in Alcina.
Nicholas Tamagna is featured on DVD recordings in the title role of Akhnaten
(forthcoming, Orange Mountain Music), the Spirit in Dido and Aeneas (2015, Outhère
Music), and with Canadian early music ensemble ¡Sacabuche! in performances of
unpublished works of the Italian Baroque (forthcoming, ATMA Classique).
An active concert soloist, Mr. Tamagna has sung in renowned venues including Carnegie
Hall, Merkin Hall, Avery Fischer Hall, and the Bozar in Bruxelles. At Lincoln Center he
performed his house debut as a soloist in Goossens’ Edition of Händel’s Messiah and
returned again in a production of Babes in Toyland with Little Orchestra Society.
Nicholas Tamagna was the 1st Prize winner of the inaugural Nico Castel International
Mastersinger Competition. In 2011 he won 2nd Judges Prize in the Arkadi Foundation
Opera Competition, and was a semi-finalist in the Gianni Bergamo Award Competition for
Countertenors in Lugano, Switzerland.
