The Marriage of Figaro


Dominica is a mezzo-soprano from Dublin. As a Young Artist with Northern Ireland Opera (2016/17), she sang the role of Dorabella in an abridged touring production of Mozart’s Così fan tutte. She previously covered the role of Second Secretary in the Irish premiere of John Adams’s Nixon in China for Wide Open Opera. She sang Second Maiden in Puccini’s Turandot with NI Opera, and Second Bridesmaid in Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro with Lyric Opera Productions. She frequently sings in opera choruses, working with companies such as Opera Holland Park, Opera Theatre Company, NI Opera, and Wide Open Opera, and she continues her vocal studies with Judith Mok in Dublin.

As an oratorio and concert soloist, she has sung with the Ulster Orchestra, East Cork Choral Society, Dún Laoghaire Choral Society, Dublin County Choir, University of Dublin Choral Society and AIB Choral Society.

She has a passion for contemporary music, and was thrilled to be asked to perform four new works for mezzo-soprano, flute, viola, and harpsichord with members of Kirkos Ensemble for the Irish Composers’ Collective in November 2016. She took part in a masterclass with baritone Simon Keenlyside as part of the New Music Dublin festival in the National Concert Hall in March 2017 and she is currently covering the role of Amy in Donnacha Dennehy and Enda Walsh’s opera The Second Violinist, which has already enjoyed successful runs in Galway and Dublin, and travels to the Barbican, London, this September. She makes her Irish National Opera debut as Second Bridesmaid in Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro in April.
