THE DALLAS OPERA ANNOUNCES THE RETURN OF HEGGIE, SCHEER AND NATHAN GUNN IN A WORLD PREMIERE SONG CYCLE! ~~~~FRIDAY, APRIL 8, 2011 IN THE MARGOT AND BILL WINSPEAR OPERA HOUSE AT THE AT&T PERFORMING ARTS CENTER

Rosie O'Donnell's Broadway Kids has announced the lots for its 2010 Charity Auction. One of the items was:
2 VIP tickets to The Metropolitian Opera's production of The Magic Flute and a backstage meet & greet with Nathan Gunn on December 24th, 2010, at 6:30 p.m. Orchestra seats, row V, seats 111, 112. Donated by: Nathan Gunn

Lot closes: Wed, 29 Sep 2010 1:50:00 PM EDT

As of today (Sept. 15) the item appears to have been changed to "2 VIP tickets to The Metropolitian Opera's production of The Magic Flute and a backstage meet & greet with Nathan Gunn on December 21st, 2010 at 11:00am." Perhaps the change came because nobody had placed a bid for the Christmas Eve tickets. I don't know whether the date change will affect the previously announced location of the seats.

FURTHER UPDATE! (later on Sept. 15): The date is back to December 24! I wonder what was going on?!?

EVEN FURTHER UPDATE: (a few minutes later on Sept. 15): I am told that a relative of the singer says the date is indeed December 21st. So, proceed with caution, if at all, if you are interested.

New website, a work in progress: It's Unofficial: A totally unofficial, unendorsed, fan supported website about Everyone's Favorite Baritone, Nathan Gunn

July 21, 2009

"The concert opened with Copland's second set of 'Old American Songs,' with the dapper baritone Nathan Gunn as the soloist.

"Even mediated by microphones and loudspeakers the performance was worth savoring. Mr. Gunn sang with generous tone, sensitivity and exactly the right kind of swagger to bring these rustic songs to life. Mr. Gilbert, attentive and sympathetic, guided a spry, nuanced account."
--from review, by Steve Smith of New York Times, of New York Philharmonic concert in Central Park on Friday July 17
