Belcore in Donizetti's L'Elisir d'Amore, Los Angeles Opera


"Lawless's 'L'Elisir' is an ensemble piece, and everyone this time around appeared believable. But the production did tend to swallow up the young singers. Without large voices or over-sized personalities, they had trouble dominating the stage dramatically or vocally--hay (even fake hay) isn't a very good acoustical substance.

"Gunn was an appealing Belcore, more suave than most if a little less funny."
--Mark Swed, Los Angeles Times


"Gunn's baritone proved smooth, light and mellow as Belcore, perhaps a bit too much so for the part. One desired a little more meat there."--Timothy Mangan, Orange County Register


A review at Opera-L


"Nathan Gunn was only a moderately successful Belcore, all the more puzzling because if anyone in the opera world could be assumed to easily pull off this role it should be opera's chief stud baritone."--The Ambassador roams high and low
