Dean Sinclair, Tenor
This year, Dean takes on a new challenge with G&S Opera Sydney combining his role offstage as Director with that of Old Adam onstage.
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.

The Savoy Arts Company Incorporated has been producing shows since 1985, specialising in the operettas of William Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan. To better reflect its primary artistic objective, commencing from 2014, the company will be performing as Gilbert & Sullivan Opera Sydney. Our performing group has provided excellent training in all aspects of stagecraft for performers who have made a career in opera and musical theatre. The Ensemble style of our productions not only provides the chorus with experience in singing with an orchestra, but also provides ample opportunity to learn and develop skills in characterisation and stagecraft.
