The young bass had his first stage experiences at the Bavarian Theatre Academy and at the Bavarian State Opera’s operatic studio, where he was a member fo the ensemble from 2012 to 2016. It was in in Munich where he was able to showcase his extraordinary dramatic talents in many different roles such as Don Fernando (Fidelio), Masetto (Don Giovanni), The Speaker (The Magic Flute), Sylvano (La Calisto), Zuniga (Carmen), Truffaldino (Ariadne auf Naxos), Publio (The Clemency of Titus), Caronte (L’Orfeo), Nachtigall (Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg), Albert (La Juive), or Osman (Les Indes galantes). 

But it is not just Munich where Tareq Nazmi’s name is renowned. In summer 2015, René Jacobs conducted Mozart’s Don Giovanni on an acclaimed tour with Freiburg’s Baroque Orchestra with concerts in Barcelona, Shanghai, Beijing and Paris, and invited Tareq Nazmi to sing the parts of Il Commendatore and Masetto, following the practice of the opera’s premiere. In 2016, Don Giovanni again played a central role in Tareq Nazmi’s repertoire; he made his debut at Cologne’s Opera House as Leporello under François-Xavier Roth and at the end of the year he appeared in a new production of Don Giovanni at the Theater an der Wien in Vienna. Two further role- and venue debuts took Tareq Nazmi to Komische Oper Berlin for Basilio in Rossini’s The Barber of Seville, and to St Gallen where he starred in a new production of Nabucco as Zaccaria, venturing into the Verdi repertoire for the first time. At the Grafenegg Festival and the Philharmonie Cologne, Tareq Nazmi appeared in the title role in the rarely-performed Thamos, King of Egypt.
