Tenor Brent Damkier Returns to The Magic Flute and Prince Tamino
for 4 Performances
January 12, 2005
Brent L. Damkier, (pronounced Dam-key-r) handsome lyric tenor at
the Regensburg Opera, is best known for his recent roles as Prince
Tamino in The Magic Flute and Prince Ramiro in Cinderella. Damkier
will be reprieving his role in Mozart’s The Magic Flute in 2005:
on the following dates: January 29, February 28, March 4th and 13th.
Just 75 miles (120 kilometers) out of Munich is the historic German
town of Regensburg. Just off the Danube River, nestled in the heart
of a charming old town square is an intimate 380 year-old opera
house seating 524 dedicated patrons and international guests; it is
home to the leading tenor.
Damkier, who has performed throughout Europe, thrills audiences,
with his sweet interpretation and punctuated tenor dexterity. From
character parts, to the male ingénue, to the leading man, Damkier
is bridging his operating roots to a U.S. tour in 2006 which will
cross-over to a cabaret format broadening his audience and fan club.
One of the recital performances in early 2006 will be recorded and
distributed for wide release.
The youthful face looks to be fresh out of high school having
originally hailed from Northern California, yet is the face, voice,
and actor of a well-trained virtuoso in his thirties. Six years ago
without any training in German, the nearly six-foot tall, handsome,
golden-eyed, fair-skinned performer headed for Germany to hone his
craft on the stages of several smaller opera companies. According to
producer and promoter TR Cutler, Damkier will make his recital debut
in South Florida.
