Nicola Conforto was an Italian composer.
He studied music at the Conservatory in his hometown, in the Santa Maria di Loreto Conservatory, where his teachers were Giovanni Fischietti e Francesco Mancini. After receiving his education, he made his debut during the carnival of 1746 in Naples as an opera composer with La finta vedova. In the following years he staged his other works both in Naples and Rome; the fame achieved by these successes meant that in 1750 he received the commission to represent the Teatro San Carlo in his first opera seria, Antigonus.
