Nathan Gunn To Debut Onegin

The seemingly ageless Nathan Gunn is taking on a new role next year. The barihunk will perform the role of Onegin in Tchaikovsky's "Eugene Onegin" at the Cincinnati Opera in their upcoming season. Gunn will be joined by Tatiana Monogarova as Tatyana and William Burden as Lensky. Performances are July 14 and July 16, 2011.

Gunn will undoubtedly be compared to two of the greatest Onegin's off all-time, both of whom are still performing. Here are Dmitri Hvorostovsky and Marius Kwiecien:

  1. I'm sure he'll be great, but you've rightly pointed out that he's going to face some serious comparisons. The only problem with all three of these guys is that it raises the question, "What the hell was Tatiana thinking?" Unless the Lensky was Jonas Kaufmann, I'd take any of these Onegins over the Lensky.

  2. Regardless, he will be awesome. He has the looks, talents, and physique to do this. I'm curious what is his secret routines to keep in such a good shape and smooth skin. He looks like he's in his late 20's.
