Nathan Stark in La Fille du Regiment

Alumnus Nathan Stark performed the role of Sergeant Sulpice in La Fille du Regiment at the Madison opera Feb 7 and 9, 2014.

He received several excellent reviews including, “With Nathan Stark as Sergeant Sulpice, the opening scene of Act 2 was simply a tour de force” from the Madison Magazine; “Tall and stocky veteran baritone Nathan Stark is ideal as the blustering but warm-hearted Sulpice.” from the Daily Isthmus; and “Mr. Stark… was clearly the most experienced of the three principals. Although more often than not tasked with portraying serious bass roles such as the Commendatore in Don Giovanni, Mr. Stark was perfectly charming as the oafish Sulpice, leader of the regiment that has raised Marie, and primary father figure to the lass.  He gave Sulpice his all, making him both believable and amusing. One wonders whether singing basso buffo roles might prove to be a gold mine for Mr. Stark. He was certainly very successful with this one!” from www.taminophile.com.
