Nathan Stark Interview in The MadOpera Blog

Nathan Stark wil be performing the role of Il Commendatore in Don Giovanni at Madison Opera. MadOpera interviewed him, asking him 10 questions. Some of the highlights are below.

3. A live music performance I’ve attended that I will never forget is:
It has to be the first professional opera I ever saw - La Traviata at LA Opera. I was spellbound afterward. I knew I wanted to have a career in opera after that experience.

7. If you could perform with any singer, retired or deceased, who would it be? 
For opera, it would be Marilyn Horne. She’s been my friend & mentor for several years and I just adore her. Outside of that, I would love to perform with (don’t laugh) Dolly Parton. She’s always been one of my favorite performers, knows how to connect with her fans & audiences, and keeps reinventing herself after all these years… and not just with plastic surgery!
8. If you weren’t a singer, what profession would you be in? 
A school teacher. Young minds are a beautiful thing and I’ve always thought being a teacher was such a noble profession. Teachers are heroes.
