Re-Introducing Nathan Keoughan; Another reader submission

Canadian Barihunk Nathan Keoughan
We love it when our readers send us new barihunks to follow and post for your pleasure. The latest is Canadian Nathan Keoughan, who will be competing in the Canadian Opera Company Ensemble Studio competition on Tuesday, November 26, 2013 at the Four Seasons Centre in Toronto. We originally posted about him, albeit briefly, when he participated in last year's competition, but we feel he's worth a re-introduction.

Keoughan was born and raised in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island and completed his bachelor of music at the University of Prince Edward Island. He went on to study at the prestigious New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, where he completed a master’s degree in Vocal Performance in 2012.

An accomplished theatre actor, Nathan portrayed Royal Gardner in Anne & Gilbert  at the Harbourfront Theatre for three consecutive summers, and also played Edwin Simpson in Nine Lives, a musical about the life of L.M. Montgomery, for the Charlottetown Festival.

Keoughan’s opera roles include Colline in La Bohème (Cowtown Opera, Highland Opera Studio), Sarastro in The Magic Flute (Highland Opera Studio), the Mayor in Dr. Miracle (New England Conservatory) and excerpts of Figaro (The Marriage of Figaro, New England Conservatory).

His dream roles are Wotan in Wagner’s Der Ring des Nibelungen and Scarpia in Puccini's Tosca.
You can follow him on Twitter @nathankeoughan.

Tickets to the Ensemble Studio Competition and Centre Stage cocktail celebration are $100. For more information and to purchase tickets visit or call 416-363-8231.

At the sold-out Ensemble Studio Competition in 2012, six singers including barihunk Gordon Bintner, Charlotte Burrage, Aviva Fortunata, Clarence Frazer, Andrew Haji and Danielle MacMillan – were selected out of 10 finalists to join the 2013/2014 Ensemble Studio. Bintner was the First Prize Winner and People's Choice Award recipient.
