Figaro: I due Figaro (Mercadante) Voicebox: Opera in Concert 2018

As Figaro, Nicholas Borg showed off his ample baritone voice... Borg was an engaging visual and vocal actor. -Matthew Timmermans, Opera Canada

"It was a strong line up of soloists. The busiest and perhaps the most impressive was Nicholas Borg who portrayed Figaro as conniving and not overly brave. He made light work of the fairly large amount of patter song called for" - John Gilks, Opera Ramblings 

Voltaire/Pangloss/Martin: Candide Toronto Operetta Theatre 2017

Key to any presentation of Candide is a singer who can also serve as an actor to play Voltaire.  This Nicholas Borg does to perfection.  He knows that the more matter-of-fact he makes Voltaire’s narration, the funnier it will be.  As a singer he possesses a warm, sonorous baritone that make Dr. Pangloss’s lecture (“The Best of All Possible Worlds”) a musical and dramatic pleasure...Borg communicates well in the rhythmically difficult laughing song “Words! Words! Words!”  - Christopher Hoille, Stage Door

As the narrator Voltaire, Dr. Pangloss, and the Streetsweeper Martin baritone Nicholas Borg was a delight... [He] had the expressionistic style down to a tee. His voice was dark, rich and warm and he too handled the patter very well. -Gregory Finney, Schmopera 

El Dancaïro: Carmen Mississauga Symphony Orchestra 2017

As the smugglers Dancaïro and Remendado, Nicholas Borg and Alvaro Robles Vazquez (respectively) were a delight. Physically dynamic and entertaining, the two were the driving force in that devil of a quintet and seemed to be the most comfortable and adept in this performance space.- Gregory Finney, Schmopera

The Pirate King: Pirates of Penzance Toronto Operetta Theatre 2016 

Finally there’s Nicholas Borg making his debut as the Pirate King.  He manages the right touch of sentimentality without being too cloying and is a more than decent singer-  John Gilks, Opera Ramblings

Tarquinius: Rape of Lucretia MYOpera 2016

(Borg) quite convincingly played the villain as impetuous and entitled rather than truly evil. - John Gilks, Opera Ramblings 

Borg committed to his character of Tarquinius, and though the rape scene is uncomfortable to watch, Borg delivered a compelling performance. -Mooney on Theatre 

Baritone Nicholas Borg's Tarquinius was a malevolent threat from the outset-solicitous, courteous and confident in his own aristocratic standing and quite cold calculating in his violation. -Wayne Gooding, Opera Canada

Sir Joseph Porter: HMS Pinafore U of T Opera 2014 

 

Nicholas Borg’s Sir Joseph Porter KCB was splendid.  He produced a perfect rendering of a self absorbed pompous ass rather than a doddery old git. - John Gilks, Opera Ramblings
