Nick Dwyer is a graduate of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London. Nick recently performed as Escamillo in Carmen with Kentish Chamber Opera, a tour which will resume this Summer. Before the pandemic started, he sang the title role in Le Nozze di Figaro at the Celebrate Voice Festival, Salisbury, where he previously sang as Masetto in their production of Don Giovanni.
Roles include Flemish Deputy in Don Carlo at Grange Park Opera, where he previously performed as Zaretsky in Eugene Onegin whilst understudying the title role. Elsewhere, Nick performed as Marcello (La Bohème, OperaUpClose), Don Alfonso (Cosi Fan Tutte, Clonter Opera), Simone (A Florentine Tragedy, Opera in the City Festival), Guglielmo (Cosi Fan Tutte, Bath Philharmonia Orchestra), Sid (Albert Herring, Hampstead Garden Opera), Salieri (Mozart and Salieri, Opera in the City Festival), Count Almaviva (The Marriage of Figaro, OperaUpClose), Yamadori (Madama Butterfly, Bury Court Opera), Eugene Onegin (Onegin and Tatiana, Grimeborn Festival), and Javert (Les Miserables, Pimlico Opera Prisons Project). Concert performances include the baritone solo in William Walton's Belshazzar's Feast with the Bath Philharmonia Orchestra.
Salieri is taken by Nick Dwyer, a baritone whose operatic experience is immense, and who is one of the clearest enunciators of text I have ever heard – the opera is performed in English. He has a strong, attractive voice too, and altogether gave a most convincing account of the role.
