About the Artist
Antonio Domino, tenor, is a native of New Orleans, Louisiana and enjoys a varied career on the operatic and concert stage with performances representing a variety of musical genres from the Baroque era to the 20th Century and beyond. As a performer, the brilliant gestures of Bel Canto era composers such as Rossini and Donizetti hold a special place in his heart. However, his 2022 appearance in Kurt Weill's Street Scene has become a memorable musical highlight. Mr. Domino's opera credits include the productions of Street Scene by Kurt Weill as Dick McGann and Incoronazione di Poppea by Claudio Monteverdi as Primo Soldato with Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music in Houston, TX. At the LAH-SOW opera workshop he performed the role of Tamino in Mozart’s The Magic Flute. Other roles include Le petit Vielliard in L’enfant et les sortilèges, and Aeneas in Dido & Aeneas at Loyola University in New Orleans. His Opera Scenes appearances include La fille du Régiment, Tonio; Carmen, Ramendado; Il barbiere di Siviglia, Count Almaviva; The Marriage of Figaro, Don Curzio; and La Cenerentola, Don Ramiro.
As a soloist on the concert stage, Mr. Domino has performed with the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra in The Infant Minstrel and His Peculiar Menagerie by Lera Auerbach, Joseph Haydn’s Missa in Angustiis, as well as a selection of songs at the annual Opus Ball.
Mr. Domino has worked with notable conductors such as Carlos Miguel Prieto with the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, Robert Lyall with the New Orleans Opera, Stephen Osgood and Gary Wedow at Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music.
Mr. Domino has received his Bachelor’s Degree in Vocal Performance at the Loyola University School of Music, with Dreux Montegut, and his Master’s Degree in Vocal Performance, at Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music where he was a student of renowned voice professor Robin Rice. He is also a graduate of the Houston Grand Opera’s Young Artist Vocal Academy.
