Minnesota native Nathan Brian is fairly new on the scene, but is rapidly establishing a solid career after completing his studies at the University of Michigan. He will be singing in Gounod's "Romeo et Juliette" at the Minnesota Opera in January and February 2008. He has also performed with the Sarasota Opera, Utah Lyric Opera, Minnesota Orchestra and the Ohio Light Opera.
Brian also sings musical theater, operetta and oratorio. His barihunk role is Papageno, but he looked pretty good as Ottone in "L'incoronazione di Poppea," as you can see from the photo. He was also trained as a dancer so, hopefully, he'll bring some of those moves to the stage.
