Home: Welcome

A singing actor of outstanding vocal and stagecraft ability, Mr. Mamba is an upcoming baritone who continues to establish himself on opera and concert stages nationwide, showcasing his command of diverse styles and repertoire.

Growing up in the tiny kingdom of Eswatini (formerly Swaziland), he had dreams of becoming a medical doctor but discovering his passion for music during his freshman year at Duke University set him on a path to finally embracing his purpose to heal the world from the stage.

He recently made two role debuts as Figaro in Le Nozze di Figaro with Frost Opera Theater and as Barone Duophol in La Traviata with Opera Wilmington, where he covered the role of Giorgio Germont.

Future engagements include a house debut in The Metropolitan Opera premiere of Anthony Davis' X: The Life and Times of Malcolm X, Sonora in La Fanciulla del West with North Carolina Opera, and a solo recital at Opera Wilmington.

Thando is committed to developing the growth of Opera as a celebrated and sustainable art form in his home country and the African continent as a whole.
