Vocalist - Bass-Baritone
GALILEO GALILEI - Cincinnati Opera
“Nathan Stark, heard here a few weeks earlier as the Commendatore in Don Giovanni, was a powerful Cardinal Barberini (later Pope Urban VIII), easily moving between the warm benevolence and quiet threat that mark the character.”
Joe Law, Opera News
“Cardinal Barberini [was] the fine bass Nathan Stark.”
Rafael de Acha, Seen and Heard International
Philip Glass' "Galileo Galilei"
“Nathan Stark moved from a wobbly-voiced pope to a smooth, focused bass as the younger cardinal, punctuating his words with sinister character as he warned Galileo that his work was dangerous.”
Janelle Gelfand, Cincinnati Enquirer
"Galileo Galilei" Ushers in New Era for Cincinnati Opera
“Bass Nathan Stark sang three roles with great conviction and credibility: Cardinal Barberini/Pope Urban VIII and Simplicio, the fictional character arguing the egocentricity (Earth-centered) view of the universe in the treatise scene.”
Mary Ellyn Hutton, Music in Cincinnati
Stylish "Giovanni" with Perfectly Delicious Cast

Rafael de Acha, Seen and Heard International
Bard Music Festival
“In the comprimario role of the Duke of Norfolk, Nathan Stark displayed a fresh, sharply focused [bass].”
Fred Cohn, Opera News
Opera review: 'The Pearl Fishers'
“Bass Nathan Stark finds a few moments to shine as the high priest of Brahma.”

Review: 'The Pearl Fishers'
“Bass Nathan Stark is a looming presence as the priest Nourabad.”
Clarke Bustard, Letter V
Virginia Opera's 'The Pearl Fishers' at GMU
“The cast is nicely rounded off with Nathan Stark as Nourabad, the high priest.”
Mark Beachy, MD Theatre Guide
Strong cast does justice to classic

“The character of Nourabad appears too rarely to develop a personality, but bass Nathan Stark did what he could. He sounded fatherly in his first appearance with Leila and outraged after her fall from grace.”

From labor to reward: Cathedral Choir's performance honored a life well lived

Virginia Opera stages spectacular 'Aida' at GMU
"The Virginia Opera opened the Northern Virginia edition of its 2011-2012 season this past weekend with an astonishing and impressive staging of Giuseppe Verdi's Aïda. ... As the Egyptian King, bass Nathan Stark stood rock solid and commanding in his brief appearances as the ruler who is also reverenced as a god."

Cincinnati Opera's 'Magic Flute' plays sweetly
"Nathan Stark turned in a warm portrayal as the Speaker."
Janelle Gelfand, Cincinnati Enquirer
"There was much to admire in the strong-voiced, authoritative Bonze of Nathan Stark."
Charles H. Parsons, Opera News
Virginia Opera's heroic 'Rigoletto'
"Bass Nathan Stark bristled with menace as professional assassin Sparafucile. Physically imposing as well, Stark's stone-cold hit-man looked like he could've taken on two tag-teams simultaneously on WWE's Saturday Night Raw. In all seriousness, from both a singing and acting standpoint, he was one of the most effective Sparafuciles this reviewer has been privileged to see and hear."
