Nicole Car

Nicole Car is one of the most outstanding singers to emerge from Australia in recent years.

In 2015, she made her début at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden – singing Tatyana in Eugene Onegin and Micaëla in Carmen.  Since this time, she has sung Fiordiligi in Così fan tutte for Deutsche Oper Berlin, Semperoper Dresden and Opera Australia, Mimi in La bohème for Covent Garden, Tatyana for the Opera de Paris and the title roles in Thaïs and Luisa Miller for Opera Australia (winning her first Helpmann Award for the latter).

2018 engagements included Violetta (La traviata) in Sydney, Mimi in Paris and Dresden, Marguerite (Faust) in Berlin and a national tour with the Australian Chamber Orchestra; Nicole also made her début at The Metropolitan Opera, New York as Mimi.  In 2019, Nicole sang Tatyana in Munich and Berlin, Micaela and Donna Elvira (Don Giovanni) for the Opera de Paris, Violetta and Marguerite at the Opera de Marseille and Ellen Orford (Peter Grimes) for the Sydney Symphony.  In 2020/2021, she sings Tatyana and Marguerite at the Wiener Staatsoper and Tatyana in Santa Fe.

After completing her Bachelor of Music at the Victorian College of the Arts, Nicole won the 2007 Herald-Sun Aria; she was the 2012 winner of the ASC Opera Awards and the 2013 winner of the Neue Stimmen competition in Germany.  Her major role début occurred in 2009 performing Donna Anna in Victorian Opera’s Don Giovanni.

For Opera Australia, Nicole has sung Tatyana, Micaëla, Mimi, Marguerite, Pamina (Die Zauberflöte), Leila (The Pearl Fishers), The Countess (Le nozze di Figaro) and both Donna Anna and Donna Elvira (Don Giovanni).   She sang Donna Anna for West Australian Opera and Adalgisa (Norma) for Victorian Opera.

Concert engagements include Brahms’ Deutsches Requiem for the Queensland and Tasmanian Symphony Orchestras; Das Klagende Lied for the QSO; The Last Night of the Proms for the TSO; Mozart’s Requiem for the Auckland Philharmonia; St John’s Passion for Sydney Philharmonia and a major programme of Strauss and Mozart with the Melbourne Symphony.

She has recorded Brahms’ Deutsches Requiem with the Melbourne Symphony, Rule Britannia! for the Tasmanian Symphony and Heroines with the Australian Chamber Orchestra.  Nicole’s solo album of operatic arias The Kiss (ABC Classics) débuted at No. 1 on the Australian classical charts.

In 2014, she made her American debut as The Countess for Dallas Opera and her European début the following year as Tatyana for Deutsche Oper Berlin.
