Originally from New Zealand, Nick Fowler has lived in Britain since his early teens and has been involved with Longborough’s Wagner project since the very start, covering the role of Alberich in the very first Das Rheingold in 1998. Since then his involvement has grown, and in Longborough’s momentous 2013 first complete Ring cycle he was assistant director, cover for Alberich in Siegfried and Götterdämmerung, Nibelung in Das Rheingold and Vassal in Götterdämmerung. At the same time he was Stage Manager for ‘Inside the Ring’ running alongside the Ring performances, including a production of the Oscar Straus operetta The Merry Nibelungs, based on the Nibelungenlied, which he translated, adapted, directed, and performed in.
Nick works as a freelance stage manager and assistant director for various companies throughout the country, among them the Philharmonia Orchestra and the Brighton and Edinburgh Festivals. He also works as a singing teacher and vocal coach, and still occasionally acts and sings in operas and concerts.
