Hailed as “heartbreakingly intense”, tenor Dominick Corbacio is a quickly emerging artist with a rapidly growing repertoire spanning opera, oratorio and art song.
During the 2017–2018 season, Dominick returned to Florida Grand Opera for a second year as a member of their studio artist program where he sang the roles of Normanno in Donizetti’s Lucia di Lamermoor, as well as the 4th Jew in Richard Strauss’ Salome. Other roles at Florida Grand Opera have included Le Remendado in Bizet’s Carmen and Monsieur Triquet in Tchaicovsky’s Eugene Onegin, for which he recieved subsequent praise for his “agile instrument” and “impressive legato”. Originally from Syracuse, NY, he has sung a number of roles at Opera Saratoga including Fenton in Verdi’s Falstaff (2017), The King of Venice in the American premiere of Philip Glass’ The Witches of Venice (2016) and The Sailor in Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas (2015) directed by renowned choreographer Karole Armitage. In 2015, Dominick was featured as a guest artist at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in Lee Mingwei’s performance art piece, Sonic Blossom, for which the New York Times credited him for having given “one excellent performance after another of the sublime Du bist die Ruh.”. In 2016, he was awarded a grant in the Gerda Lissner International Vocal Competition in New York.
Other recent credits include Prince Sou Chong (Das Land des Lächelns), Ballad Singer (Of Mice and Men), Steven Todd/Arnold Murray (The Life and Death(s) of Alan Turing), Castleman (The Long Walk), Mario (Il Postino), Ernesto (Don Pasquale) and Don Ottavio (Don Giovanni).
