About Regina Nathan
Regina Nathan is a performer and producer whose career in opera, concert and recital has taken her from her native Ireland across Europe, Malaysia and the United States.
She has sung major lyric soprano roles throughout her career. Her repertoire ranges from the title role in Cavalli’s La Calisto to the world-premiere of Mark Anthony Turnage’s The Country of the Blind for the Aldeburgh Festival/English National Opera. Regina has appeared as Carlisle Floyd’s Susannah, Moore’s Baby Doe, Gluck’s Euridice, Verdi’s Violetta, Bizet’s Léïla, Offenbach’s Antonia and Amelia in Verdi’s Un Ballo in Maschera. Her portrayal of the role of Puccini’s Cio Cio San in Madama Butterfly for Opera Ireland and at the Stadttheater Giessen was hailed with critical acclaim as was her role of Cleopatra in Handel’s Julius Caesar and Norma in Bellin’s Norma.
She has performed with Placido Domingo in a sold out audience at Dublin’s Point Theatre and has worked with conductors such as Antonio Pappano, Edo De Waart, Kent Nagano, and Frans Bruggen
A devoted recitalist, Regina’s interests embrace everything from classic Lieder to traditional Irish song.
I continue to enjoy singing, with colleagues or as part of my own projects. I regard all my work as an opportunity that I approach with excitement, expectation and sometimes with a pinch of apprehension.
Producing and performing my own recitals and concerts is a great source for continued learning, growth and empowerment, not only musically but also from a business and publicity perspective.
Learning new repertoire, experimenting with program selections which include diverse genres of music is extremely satisfying and fulfilling. I aim to use this website to share as much information as possible about these projects.
With this kind of work, I continue to expand my knowledge on vocal production, which is constantly being updated, and working with amazing collaborators; teachers, vocal coaches, directors, audio engineers, video engineers, and lighting experts.
Nowdays – particularly in the context of the pandemic lockdowns – such support is especially relevant as I enter the realm of online performances.
Such work helps me explore, focus, create and breed further opportunities, as it puts me in contact with people that can help and from whom I can learn.
