    A gorgeous and beautifully sung La Bohème
    Opera Santa Barbara

    Santa Barbara Independent
    -Charles Donelan 

    A gorgeous and beautifully sung production featuring some of the most exciting performances we’ve seen from the company.

    Nathan Granner’s electrifying Rodolfo occupied the center of the show’s Parisian universe.

    Nathan Granner wowed with tons of squillo on his top notes, honey tone, and sensitive dynamic choices, especially during “Che gelida manina” (What a cold little hand). His angst-filled facial expressions tugged at the heartstrings.

    " when a magician approaches the secretary to make his case, performs magic tricks and hypnotizes the assembled, is a wildly successful tour de force, which Nathan Granner made the most of here."

    - David J Brown

    ...the challenge for Mr Granner was considerable in having to refocus the audience’s attention, near the end of a longish evening, on the love-lost Edgardo’s tragic plight. However, he rose to the moment splendidly...

    Invention of Morel

    ...a brilliant piece of musical surrealism

    Chicago Tribune - John von Rhein

    With his high, ethereal tenor, Nathan Granner conveys megalomaniacal suave as the Prospero-like inventor Morel ("Immortality is a holy grail!" declares this master of his machines).

    There is Morel ... honeyed tenor Nathan Granner, just smarmy and egotistical enough as the “inventor” who is revealing his monumental discovery...
