Dean Sinclair, Tenor
This year, Dean takes on a new challenge with G&S Opera Sydney as the Assistant Director of Pirates of Penzance!
Operetta (G&S in particular) features extensively in Dean’s musical theatre experience. He loves the G&S comedic roles, having played Reginald Bunthorne in Patience, Sir Joseph Porter in HMS Pinafore, Ko Ko in The Mikado, The Lord Chancellor in Iolanthe, Robin Oakapple in Ruddigore – and most recently The Duke of Plaza-Toro in The Gondoliers for Gilbert & Sullivan Opera Sydney.
Amongst other roles, Dean has sung Cyril in Princess Ida, Ralph Rackstraw in HMS Pinafore, Dr Daly in The Sorcerer, Grosvenor in Patience, Jack Point in The Yeomen of the Guard, & Luiz in The Gondoliers. His further light opera outings have included roles in such musical gems as The Arcadians, Showboat, The Gypsy Baron, and The Count of Luxembourg.
Dean particularly loves singing the beautiful songs of Ivor Novello, Franz Lehar, Jerome Kern, & Noel Coward, many of which he’s rendered in concert performances across Sydney.
Dean is currently President of Gilbert & Sullivan Opera Sydney.
