• 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 role of Korey Wise in Anthony Davis' Pulitzer Prize winning "The Central Park Five," the title character 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 coming season Nathan will be making his company role debut with Opera Orlando as Don José in Carmen in 2021.


    Not to be undone by Covid19, Mr. Granner has used his skills as a producing artist to create a multitude of video performances for a number of different organizations, including "Sing Out Loud" a web series for LA Opera’s Connects division (with his wife, soprano Jamie Chamberlin) has led to a passel of new fans and will be returning for another season. Stay tuned for a LOT more.


    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.

    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".
