Welsh-German baritone Thomas Nießer was educated at the University of Bristol and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, where he studied under Professor Janice Chapman. As part of his undergraduate degree, he spent a year in Heidelberg where he studied under Ashley Prewitt at the Staatsoper Stuttgart.

Recent opera roles include Dr Falke Die Fledermaus (Schlossfestspiele Ettlingen), Don Giovanni Don Giovanni (Berlin Opera Academy), Guglielmo Così fan tutte (Love Opera) and Alfio Cavalleria Rusticana (North Wales Opera). He is also in demand on the concert stage, his oratorio roles including Elgar The Dream of Gerontius, Bach Weihnachtsoratorium, Handel Messiah and the Requiems of Mozart, Brahms, Duruflé and Fauré. A proud Welsh speaker, Thomas has a passion for Welsh song and enjoys bringing this lesser-known repertoire to a wider audience.
