London 5 September 1953 - Vienna 7 January 2010
John Dickie, born Sept. 5th, 1953, London; son of the tenor Murray Dickie. Grew up in Vienna,
where he also studied voice. Debut at the Vienna Volksoper; later a member of the opera theatres
of Wuppertal, Mannheim and Hamburg. Debut at the Vienna Staatsoper in 1983. In his first few years,
he would sing leading parts, but soon had to limit himself to comprimario parts, which he still
sings at the Staatsoper (2007),
though his voice has been a total wreck for many years already.
