Musco Center Presents



Globe-trotting superstar baritone Nathan Gunn returns to OC following his hit one-man show Flying Solo at Laguna Playhouse. Selected as one of People’s Sexiest Men Alive, he has performed in major operas at nearly every top venue in the world. On this outing he appears with his wife, acclaimed pianist Julie Gunn, to offer an intimate performance that transcends the form of opera, featuring an unorthodox program ranging from Mozart to Bernstein, Tom Waits, and Kurt Weill.

“Nathan Gunn commands an operatic baritone whose mighty heft and richness confer an outsized authority on everything it touches.” – The New York Times
