Competitions

Mario Lanza Opera Prize RBC 2nd Place (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, is currently undertaking his fourth year of undergraduate study at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire under the tutelage of soprano Maureen Brathwaite. Jack’s journey into classical music was atypical as he began his musical studies as a rock and blues guitarist performing in bands at school and around his home town of Manchester. However, his eclectic taste in music led him to musical theatre, sparking a fascination with the voice and research into of all types of singing. At the age of fifteen, he performed the role of Jean Valjean in an amateur production of Les Misérables which confirmed his love for performance. At this time, he was persuaded by Claire Surman, a renowned soprano and teacher, to begin training. He studied with Claire for two years before gaining his place at the RBC in 2015 and still returns to her for regular lessons. Whilst at the RBC, Jack has appeared on stage every year. Most recently, he performed in opera scenes as Roberto Devereux, the Earl of Essex (Britten: Gloriana), Fenton (Verdi: Falstaff) and Alfredo (Verdi: La Traviata) and sang the lead role of Raoul de Gardefeu in Offenbach’s La Via Parisienne. Other roles covered at the conservatoire include Don Curzio (Mozart: La Nozze di Figaro), Prunier (Puccini: La Rondine) and Roderigo (Verdi: Otello). Jack also has an active career outside conservatoire life, performing oratorio and operatic repertoire as a soloist regularly with a network of choral societies and orchestras. Upcoming events include Dido and Aeneas with Strada Stretta Opera in Malta and Mozart’s Requiem at Symphony Hall in Birmingham conducted by Michael Seal. In May 2018, Jack placed second in the RBC’s esteemed Mario Lanza Opera Prize.
