Age when you started singing


Favourite opera

Der Ring des Nibelungen

Favourite opera role to perform

Alberich (although I’m soon to do Wotan in Singapore!)

Aunty Jack is a huge influence. Grahame Bond’s The Aunty Jack Show was my favourite thing when I was a pre-schooler. 

Where’s the strangest place you’ve performed? 

The ladies’ toilet in Melbourne Town Hall.


  • Helpmann Award (Alberich)

"Fyfe mesmerised the audience with his big, blustering voice and stage presence."
