Nathan T. Gunn (born November 26, 1970, in South Bend, Indiana) is an American operatic baritone who performs regularly around the world. He is an alumnus of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where he is currently a professor of voice.
He has appeared in many of the world's well-known opera houses, including the Metropolitan Opera in New York City, the San Francisco Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Houston Grand Opera, Seattle Opera, the Dallas Opera, the Opera Company of Philadelphia, the Pittsburgh Opera, The Santa Fe Opera, The Royal Opera in London, the Paris Opéra, the Bavarian State Opera in Munich, Theater an der Wien in Vienna, Opera Theatre of Saint Louis, Teatro Real in Madrid, and the Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie in Brussels. He has also appeared at the Glyndebourne Festival near London, the Ravinia Festival near Chicago, and the Mostly Mozart Festival in New York City. In 2011, Gunn was featured as a guest star in the Mormon Tabernacle Choir's annual Christmas concert before an audience of 80,000 in Salt Lake City. The concert was broadcast on PBS and was released as an album in 2012 entitled Once Upon a Christmas.
In August 2015, Gunn starred in the world premiere of a new opera presented by The Santa Fe Opera. It was Jennifer Higdon's Cold Mountain, based on the award-winning 1997 novel of the same name by Charles Frazier. Gunn's previous Santa Fe performances include a 1998 production of Berlioz’ Béatrice et Bénédict as well as a 1999 production of Richard Strauss’ Ariadne auf Naxos.
While he is noted for his vocal prowess and acting, Gunn has received almost as much fame for his physique, a peculiar feat for an opera singer. He has been dubbed a "barihunk" although as a play on baritone and hunk, he has said he prefers the term "hunkitone." In 2008, he was featured in People magazine's list of "The Sexiest Men Alive."
Gunn was appointed a tenured professor of voice in 2007 at the University of Illinois School of Music, and in 2013 he was named general director of the Lyric Theater @ Illinois. In 2012 the Opera Company of Philadelphia appointed him director of its American Repertoire Council promoting new American works. His wife, Julie Jordan Gunn, who holds a doctorate (A. Mus. D.) in vocal coaching and accompanying from University of Illinois, was also appointed associate professor in collaborative piano at the University.


Nathan Gunn is recognised as one of America’s most exciting young baritones. He has appeared in many of the world’s most prestigious opera houses including the Metropolitan Opera, the Lyric Opera of Chicago, the Seattle Opera, the Houston Grand Opera, the Dallas Opera, the Opera Company of Philadelphia, the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, the Paris Opéra, the Glyndebourne Festival, and La Monnaie in Brussels. His many rôles include the title-rôle in Billy Budd, Guglielmo in Così fan tutte, Marcello in La Bohéme, Harlekin in Ariadne auf Naxos, Papageno in Die Zauberflöte, Prince Andrei in War and Peace, and the title-rôle in Hamlet. Equally at home on the concert platform, Nathan Gunn has appeared with the New York Philharmonic, the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, the London Symphony Orchestra, and the Rotterdam Symphony Orchestra. A frequent recitalist, he was featured in John Wustman’s seven-year series, The Songs of Franz Schubert, which concluded in 1997 on the 200th anniversary of Franz Schubert’s birth and included performances of Die schöne Müllerin and Winterreise. He has also been presented in recital by Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, the Wigmore Hall in London, Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie, Brussels, the 92nd Street Y in New York, Cal Performances at Berkeley, the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society, Vanderbilt University, and the University of Chicago. An alumnus of the Metropolitan Opera’s Lindemann Young Artists Program, Nathan Gunn is also the winner of the 1994 Metropolitan Opera National Council Competition, the 1998 ARIA award, and a 1997 Tucker Foundation Career Grant. He received his Bachelor’s Degree in Music from the University of Illinois, where he studied with William Miller and John Wustman.
