Nathan Stark

"As Pope Urban VIII, a.k.a. Cardinal Barberini, as well as the philosopher Simplicio in Scene 5, Nathan Stark made a strong impression with his rich, authoritative bass and his portrayal of the fundamentally selfish man beneath the genial intellectual."
 - Opera Lively, July 2013

"Stark, Dayton Opera's Hunding in our Die Walküre, is a major voice and stage presence."
  - Burt Saidel, Oakwood Register, July 2013

"Nathan Stark made a stentorian Commendatore."

- Cincinnati Enquirer, June 2013

"His sidekick, Leporello, was hilarious as the long-suffering servant. You don’t often get real belly laughs in opera, but Nathan Stark, an accomplished patter singer, did while delivering perfect dialogue in a booming bass."
- Michigan Live, February 2013

" In the comprimario role of the Duke of Norfolk, Nathan Stark displayed a fresh, sharply focused [bass].”
Opera News, 2012

"In the small but key role of the tribe’s “enforcer,” Nourabad, bass Nathan Stark was particularly adept at using his dark instrument to create a sense of menace and foreboding once he’s discovered the forbidden love between Leila and Nadir."
                                              — The Washington Times, October 2012

" Mr. Stark’s unusual, variegated voice had already impressed me in earlier concerts. He is an original, gifted with a large, piebald voice of power and resonance...he was entirely in his element on the operatic stage. "

 - New York Arts

"The bass, Nathan Stark as the King of Egypt has become one of my favorite performers at the Virginia Opera over the recent years. He did a spectacular job as the Commendatore in Don Giovanni and as Sparafucile in Rigoletto. Mr. Stark has a booming rich bass voice and is consistently called on for roles that demand great stage presence, which he fulfills so naturally."
                                        - The Schiller Institute, November 2011       

Most telling of the solos was the ominous and unearthly power of Nathan Stark.”     
                                 - The Washington Post, February 2010."

" From both a singing and acting standpoint, he was one of the most effective          Sparafuciles this reviewer has been privileged to see and hear.” 
                                        - Washington Times, October, 2010

There was much to admire in the strong-voiced, authoritative Bonze of Nathan Stark.
