After singing the Messiah solos at 17, Ian Comboy studied at The Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester and The Vienna Academy. He made his début in The Magic Flute at Glyndebourne, and after one performance was offered a contract with English National Opera where he sang Leporello in Don Giovanni, Wagner’s Mastersingers conducted by Reginald Goodall, The Force of Destiny, Ariadne auf Naxos, The Mikado and Sondheim’s Pacific Overtures. Ian Comboy had a long association with Scottish Opera (Don Giovanni, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Mastersingers and Mary Queen of Scots) and Welsh National Opera (Wozzeck, Ariadne, House of the Dead, Der Freischutz, Die Frau ohne Schatten, and John Metcalf’s Tornrak). He made his début at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden in Peter Maxwell Davies’s Taverner, where he also sang in Don Carlos in the much-acclaimed Zeffirelli/Visconti production under Haitink, and Kurt Weill’s Seven Deadly Sins.
