" Jack Dolan's Tamino was tireless and ardent..." Christopher Morley (2019)
"...Jack Dolan’s big, brisk and engagingly raffish Gardefeu had a lively comic rapport with both Gribble and Andrew Randall’s delightfully dry stick of a Swedish baron." (Richard Bratby) (2018)
All four soloists (Samantha Joy Taylor, Jack Dolan and John Fletcher were the alto, tenor and baritone) wove a lovely tone through and above the sustained sound of the hundred-strong choir which was really powerful. - Joan Hamilton (2018)
The soloists, too, impressed from the outset with tenor Jack Dolan’s arresting and incisive opening Recitative and Aria reminding us of the operatic provenance of the Handelian oratorio. - Joan Hamilton (2017)
Lyric tenor, Jack Dolan, was born and raised in Manchester. He is currently based in Birmingham, where he studies as a fourth-year undergraduate at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire under the tutelage of soprano Maureen Brathwaite. Jack’s musical roots lie in rock and blues and he studied as a guitarist for six years whilst developing a love for Classical music. His eclectic taste in music led to the discovery of musical theatre and sparked an obsession with the voice and research into all different types of singing. He was finally persuaded by Claire Surman, to change his path to study at Conservatoire and train as a tenor. In September 2019, Jack will commence his studies as a Master’s student at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
Jack works as a freelance singer and enjoys a busy performance career both inside and outside the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. He has appeared in staged operatic productions as chorus in Ravel’s L’Enfant et les Sortilegès (Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, Birmingham), A. Sullivan and S. Grundy Haddon Hall (National G&S Opera Company, Buxton/Harrogate), Don Curzio in Mozart’s La Nozze di Figaro (Royal Birmingham Conservatoire), Raoul de Gardefeu in Offenbach’s La Vie Parisienne (Royal Birmingham Conservatoire), Tamino in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte (Royal Birmingham Conservatoire) and Aeneas in Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas (Strada Stretta Opera, Malta). Concert versions of operatic engagements include Frederic and The Defendant in Gilbert and Sullivan’s Pirates of Penzance and Trial by Jury, respectively. Both were performed in collaboration with Rugby Philharmonic Choir. As well as operatic performances, Jack frequently performs oratorio with a network of companies and choral societies around the UK. He rejoins the National G&S Opera Company this year to perform in the chorus for their main festival.
