16th April 2024 in News

For ENO his roles spanning 40 years ranged from Papageno in The Magic Flute and Tonio in Pagliacci to the title role in the world premiere of Dame Judith Weir’s Blond Eckbert.

As well as being a fine singer, Nicholas was also a knowledgeable teacher and more recently an excellent diction coach. Elsewhere, being of German descent himself, He particularly thrived in roles such as Beckmesser and Alberich.

A hugely likeable man who always had a good story to tell, he will be much missed, and we send our condolences to his wife Susanna Tudor-Thomas, a member of our chorus, and the rest of his family.
