Nicholas discovered his love of opera at a very early age. The first time he was quiet for a two hour span was when he was sat in front of a video of Mozart’s Don Giovanni at the age of 2. Fortunately, in many respects, very little has changed.
After studying clarinet at Trinity Laban for a year, Nicholas read Music at the University of Oxford, where he focused his academic study on opera ranging from its inception through to the twentieth century. Whilst there, Nicholas was an ambassador for the Royal Opera House, promoting ROH initiatives and productions to the students of Oxford.
In late 2012 Nicholas co-founded Opera Lyrica with the dual aims of enabling young singers, musicians, directors, designers, and technicians gain experience and increasing opera’s audience, especially amongst the younger generation. The charity put on productions of classic operas and brought opera to a number of communities in and around the South of England.
More recently, Nicholas has been the Company Manager at The Grange Festival, working with some of the world’s most acclaimed singers in a unique setting. In his spare time, Nicholas enjoys going to the theatre and sailing.
