Praised for his “rich and nuanced" sound and “riveting” acting, tenor Nathan Snyder has built a reputation of excellence in all genres. His energy and impressive versatility make him an outstanding presence on any stage.

After premiering the role of Dewey Noyes in Staggerwing with Opera Kansas in 2021, Nathan has experienced great success in contemporary repertoire, including Clarence Elkins in Blind Injustice with Opera Theatre of the Rockies, Miles in Proving Up with Opera Steamboat, as well as covering the role of the Visitor in Phillip Glasses In The Penal Colony. Between contemporary works, Nathan has also performed standard roles including Manrico in Verdi’s Il Trovatore, Rodolfo in Puccini’s La Bohème, Don José in Carmen and Sam Polk in Carlisle Floyd’s Susannah. 


Nathan is equally at home on the concert stage, singing the tenor solos in Carmina Burana, Mozart’s Requiem, Bruckner’s Te Deum, and Stravinsky’s In Memoriam Dylan Thomas, just to name a few. He recently sang the part of the archangel Uriel in Haydn's Creation with the Laramie Choral.

Nathan has also achieved high praise for his work in musical theatre, most recently in Loveland Opera Theatre’s production of Brigadoon, where Marlow’s Musings said “Nathan Snyder’s vocals in the role of Tommy Albright are Magnificent! His “Almost Like Being in Love,” is worth the price of admission all on its own!!!" Nathan has performed, in concert, the role of Billy Early in No No Nannette and in Loveland Opera Theatre’s Rodgers and Hammerstein Jubilee.

A Colorado native and University of Northern Colorado alumnus, Nathan competed as a finalist in both the Opera Birmingham Vocal Competition and the Denver Lyric Opera Guild Competition. He is currently preparing the role of Young Jim Thompson in Glory Denied, and the role of Paco in Manuel De Falla’s La Vida Breve for Opera Fort Collins in their first ever Spanish opera. This summer, Nathan is joining the chorus of La Bohème at the Bravo! Vail Music festival with the Philadelphia Orchestra conducted by Yannick Nézet-Séguin.

Some of Nathan’s other roles have included King Kasper in Amahl and the Night Visitors, Count Almaviva in Il Barbiere di Siviglia, Don Ottavio in Don Giovanni, Belmonte in Die Entführung aus dem Serail, Ferrando in Cosi Fan Tutte, Cassio in Otello, Nemorino in L’elisir D’amore, both Eisenstein and Alfred in Die Fledermaus, Frederic in Pirates of Penzance, Martin in The Tender Land, and Albert Herring in Albert Herring.
