Nagy studied with Károly Ötvös and Mária Fekete in Hungary and with Philip O’Reilly at the Royal Irish Academy of Music. He also trained at the National Opera Studio, supported by the Royal Opera House and the International Opera Awards Foundation, and was a member of the Opera Theatre Company’s Young Associate Artists Programme in Dublin. He currently learns with Robert Dean and Nicholas Powell. He previously studied English language and literature and theatre studies at the University of Pannonia in Veszprém, Hungary.
