NATHAN GRANNER is a world-renowned leading tenor, headliner, solo, and collaborative artist specializing in Contemporary Opera and late Bel-Canto repertoire.
The San Francisco Chronicle recently described Mr. Granner’s singing as possessing a “sinewy, ringing tone; splendidly flexible,” and the San Francisco Classical Voice extolled “tons of squillo on his top notes, his honeyed tone, and his sensitive dynamic choices…”
Nathan has created numerous characters in world premiere operas, including the role of Korey Wise in Anthony Davis’ 2020 Pulitzer Prize-winning “The Central Park Five,” the title character in Gordon Getty’s “Goodbye, Mr. Chips,” Stewart Copeland’s “The Invention of Morel” for Chicago Opera Theater and Long Beach Opera and the role of Aubrey Wells in Laura Kaminsky (Mark Campbell and Kimberly Reed librettists) newest opera “Today it Rains” with Opera Paralléle.
Part of Mr. Granner’s repertoire includes Nemorino in Tim Ocel’s (L’Elisir D’amore) at Lyric Opera Kansas City; as Rodolfo in Tara Faircloth’s ultra-comic and deeply sensitive (La Bohème) with Tulsa Opera; premiering Doctor Morel for (The Invention of Morel) Chicago Opera Theater by Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Stewart Copeland (The Police) and Jonathan Moore.
Granner’s intense performance style hits all of his characters, such as playing –Curly in Charlottesville Opera’s (Oklahoma!), with contemporary opera director Mary Birnbaum and critically acclaimed secondary roles like Triquet (in a tumultuously received Spoleto USA Eugene Onegin), directed by Chen Shi-Zheng; at Long Beach Opera playing Nika Maggadoff the Magician (The Consul); touring as Payador from Astor Piazzolla’s “operita” (Maria de Buenos Aires) throughout Poland with guitarist/conductor Krzysztof Meisinger among others.
