Programme Note

Hailed by the Daily Telegraph as “a voice of real distinction”, Nicky Spence is fast emerging as one of “our finest young singers.” An artist of great integrity, Nicky’s unique skills as a singing actor and the rare honesty in his musicianship are steadfastly earning him a place at the top of the profession. 


Highlights of the 2014-15 season include David in The Mastersingers of Nuremberg at the English National Opera with Music Director Edward Gardner, a Rossini double bill at Welsh National Opera as Rodolphe in Guillaume Tell and Mambre in Mosè in Egitto with Carlo Rizzi, and Francesco in Berlioz’s Benvenuto Cellini at De Nederlandse Opera under Sir Mark Elder. Concerts include recitals with Roger Vignoles, Malcolm Martineau, and The Allegri Quartet and performances of Handel with Tromsø Chamber Orchestra, a new work by Jonathan Dove with the Oxford Bach Choir, and Tippett’s A Child of Our Time with the Auckland Philharmonia in New Zealand. Nicky also performs in concert at the Barbican, the Purcell Room, and Birmingham Symphony Hall.
