Hailed as “Heartbreakingly intense”, tenor Dominick Corbacio is a quickly emerging young artist with a rapidly growing repertoire spanning opera, oratorio and art song.
During the 2016-2017 season Dominick will make his debut with Florida Grand Opera as a member of their young artist program. While in residence there, he will sing the role of Le Remendado in Bizet’s Carmen, as well as Monsieur Triquet in Tchaicovsky’s Eugene Onegin. Originally from Syracuse, NY, he was an aprentice artist at Opera Saratoga during the summer of 2015 where he sang the role of The Sailor in Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas directed by renowned choreographer Karole Armitage. In 2016, he returned to Opera Saratoga again as an apprentice artist to sing the role of The King of Venice in the American premiere of Philip Glass’ The Witches of Venice, also directed by Ms. Armitage.
Praised recently by the New York Times as having given “One excellent performance after another…” Dominick was featured as a guest artist at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in Lee Mingwei’s performance art piece Sonic Blossom. Also in 2015, he performed the roles of Steven Todd and Arnold Murray in The Life and Death(s) of Alan Turing by Justine F. Chen with American Lyric Theater at Merkin Concert Hall in New York.
