• Nathan Granner | lyric tenor










  • 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 title role in Stewart Copeland’s The Invention of Morel for Chicago Opera Theater and Long Beach Opera and the role of Aubrey Wells in Laura
    Kaminsky’s newest opera Today it Rains with Opera Paralléle.

    This season Nathan will be premiering Rafaello in Stewart Copeland’s new oratorio “Satan’s
    Fall” with the Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh and will create the role of Faulkner in Gordon
    Getty’s new opera adaptation of Goodbye Mr. Chips at the Festival Napa Valley. In addition, he will also be
    debuting as Roméo in Gounod’s Romeo et Juliette with Opera Santa Barbara and making his
    company debut with Opera Orlando as Don José in Carmen.

    Granner's work as a recording artist (with Sony Classical, as a founding member of The American Tenors), netted a top five on the Billboard Classical-Crossover charts and as a headliner has sent him touring across the nation and into the EU and Russia.


    While his singing career continues unabated, on the business side, Nathan is Director of Marketing and Communications at Long Beach Opera.

    Nathan Granner as The Magician, "a wildly successful tour de force"
    -Opera News

    The Magician scene in Gian Carlo Menotti's horror tale of bureaucracy is a moment of slight mirth in the dire straits accompanying the opera characters. Real magic, comedic choreography and devilishly deceptive music make this scene a challenge and a reward for cast and audience alike.



    Granner sings Ah! Lêve toi Soleil






    Luckily for Romeo, Juliet's balcony is more than six feet off the ground, leaving tenor Nathan Granner free to profess his undying love. Nathan first charmed OSB audiences as Rodolfo in La bohème last season. Although our production of Romeo and Juliet cannot proceed, Nathan has graciously offered to serenade everyone at home with "Ah! lève-toi soleil".
