Fee Range: E

The only classical artist in Australian history to have released six albums by the age of 20, Mark Vincent burst onto Australian television screens in 2009, with his moving rendition of Puccini’s ‘Nessun Dorma’ on Australia’s Got Talent. He won the competition, signed with Sony Music and went on to sell more than half a million albums worldwide.

His new album, A Tribute to Mario Lanza, with its ground breaking ‘virtual duet’ of ‘Because You’re Mine’ with the Hollywood legend from the Golden Age of musicals, is expected to make headlines across the globe.

The album is the first tribute to Mario Lanza recorded by an Australian tenor, and has the imprimatur of his daughter, Ellisa Lanza Bregman, who gave permission for the re-recording of the ‘virtual duet,’ and who said, “Mark Vincent, I wish you every success and I know that this unique recording will be sought after and cherished by music lovers everywhere.”

Mark’s seventh and most recent album Together, a duet album with Marina Prior, was released in April 2016 and debuted on the Australian Album Chart at #5, and #1 on the Classical Chart. Mark and Marina then topped it up with a triumphant, sold out national tour.

Mark has sung the anthem at NRL’s State of Origin, made numerous TV and concert appearances, and for the past eight years starred in Carols in the Domain before a national television audience of millions.

Apart from his opera ambitions – he is recognised as one of the world’s emerging young tenors – Mark has an abiding love of music theatre, ignited, he says, by Anthony Warlow and Phantom of The Opera.

In 2014, Mark made his music theatre debut in the Australian production of Dirty Dancing, which played 130 shows around the country. In 2016, legendary star Julie Andrews chose Mark to play the role of Freddy, Eliza Doolittle’s love interest, in her direction of My Fair Lady at the Sydney Opera House. He currently stars in the Brisbane production of the musical and will be seen in the role in Melbourne this May, by when he will have performed it more than 200 times.
