    John Allison, The Times
  • Born in Nottingham, Nicholas studied Commerce at Birmingham University, and singing at the Royal Northern College of Music and the National Opera Studio as a Peter Moores Foundation scholar.

    He has performed Camille The Merry Widow at the Royal Festival Hall with John Wilson and the Philharmonia and made his debut at the Edinburgh International Festival as Sam in the world premiere of Ghost Patrol by Stuart Macrae for Scottish Opera and Music Theatre Wales.

    He has been a guest artist for Glyndebourne, Grange Park, Garsington, English Touring Opera, Early Opera Company, Scottish Opera and Opera North; and worked with Sir Mark Elder, Sir Simon Rattle, Nicholas McGegan, Stuart Stratford and David Parry. He created the role of Adam The Walk from the Garden by Jonathan Dove for Salisbury and Lichfield Festivals.

    In concert, he has sung Parry Jones A Serenade to Music at the BBC Proms (LSO/Sir Andrew Davis); Tirsi La Danza at Wigmore Hall (Christian Curnyn); Hotel Porter Death in Venice (QEH/Richard Hickox); Rossini’s Petite Messe Solennelle at St. John’s, Smith Square and Messiah at Cadogan Hall.

    Current plans include the role of Lucano/Soldier L’incoronazione di Poppea for Opera North, as well joining the London Mozart players in their production of a new work by Jonathan Dove, For an Unknown Soldier, English Touring Opera in their production of Il furioso all’isola di San Domingo, and Welsh National Opera to sing the role of John in Richard Ayres’ Peter Pan.

      Hilary Finch, The Times
      Best is Nicholas Sharratt, whose poised singing and acting put Paris’s dilemmas rather than Priam’s at the centre of the drama.
      Rupert Christiansen, The Telegraph

      Tim Ashley, The Guardian ****
    • Pirates of Penzance
      Scottish Opera (May 2013)

      Nicholas Sharratt is perfectly cast as the hapless Frederic – he's handsome, articulate, doe-eyed and sings beautifully.
      Kate Molleson, The Guardian
      The lightweight innocence of Nicholas Sharratt’s Frederic simply exaggerates the wonderful strain of lunacy that ignites Stephanie Corley’s bubbly Mabel.
      Ken Walton, The Scotsman ****
      Nicholas Sharratt was a properly earnest Frederic.
      Robert Thicknesse, Opera Magazine

      Sharratt emerged in every sense the hero: a chameleon in manner, movements worthy of commedia dell’arte, and a commanding vocal presence.
      Michael Church, The Independent
      Nicholas Sharratt is similarly strong as Count Almaviva, with a plangent tenor capable of negotiating even “Cessa di più resistere” with pleasing ease
      John Allison, The Telegraph
      Nicholas Sharratt's charming Almaviva and Grant Doyle's urbane Figaro (doubling on guitar for Almaviva's serenade) work well together
