John Allen
Nelson

Baritone

            Irish-American baritone John Allen Nelson is known for his “deliciously hearty sound” with “uniformity from top to bottom” paired with his clean musicality. His “full body approach” to acting always makes him an audience favorite.

             The 2022 season has Mr. Nelson making his company debuts with Opera Ithaca as Count Almaviva in Le Nozze di Figaro, with the Spoleto Festival as Alcindoro in La Bohème, and with Lubbock Symphony as Imperial Commissioner and Sharpless cover in Madama Butterly.  He returns to Boston to sing Claudius in a highlight concert of Joseph Summer’s Hamlet in partnership with Boston Lyric Opera. Last season, he appeared as Guglielmo in Così fan tutte with the Bar Harbor Music Festival and made his company debut as the Ufficiale and Figaro cover in Il Barbière di Siviglia with Finger Lakes Opera.

"...his bold, rounded singing elicits the same earthy satisfaction as a great glass of Cabernet."

"....John Allen Nelson, an overtly masculine presence as Marcello."
