The Shirtless Baritone

Nathan Gunn is one hell of a singer. No one is disputing that. But the thing is, he’s also unbelievably good-looking, especially in comparison to many of his male compatriots in the opera world, who have a tendency to look – how shall we put it – very, very fat. Consequently, Gunn’s rise to the top of the opera world (and make no mistake, 2005 was the year the young baritone became a bona fide star) has run on two parallel tracks, one defined by his gentle and distinctive voice, and the other by his exceedingly well-defined pecs.
