Nathan Gunn’s name is practically synonymous with the words “opera” and “baritone.” Other words you’re likely to encounter in the numerous articles and reviews of his work: “Heartthrob,” “bare-chested” and “sexy.” By the way, we didn't make up that word, "barihunk." How much can the classical opera world take in one man? Let People magazine keep its “Sexiest Man Alive” list (which Gunn made in 2008). Serious music lovers are more interested in the voice and his roles in such works as Show Boat, Billy Budd, The Barber of Seville and American Tragedy, right? Whether by sight or sound, Gunn has become a megastar with a career that includes performances in the great houses everywhere: the Metropolitan Opera, the Paris Opera, Seattle Opera and Royal Opera House. As an in-demand performer, Edmond’s Armstrong Auditorium is certain to be packed Thursday night. Gunn opens the venue’s 2012-13 season with a recital of songs demonstrating his musical prowess and appeal. We wouldn’t be surprised if the concert sells out tickets. Do we have to explain that, too? Tickets are $28-$68, available at www.armstrongauditorium.org. The auditorium is located at 14400-B S. Bryant Road, Edmond.
