Laguna Playhouse

Part of the 2018 Laguna Beach Music Festival

Festival Artistic Director
Nicholas Phan, tenor

In his final program, "The American Spirit," Nicholas Phan and special guests take listeners on a musical road trip through the great American songbook, with a few side excursions into songs influenced by our great musical traditions. The program features everything from Bernstein and Copland to Broadway, Joan Baez, and Lennon and McCartney.

Appearing regularly in the world's premiere concert halls, music festivals and opera houses, American tenor Nicholas Phan continues to distinguish himself as one of the most compelling tenors performing today. His many opera credits include appearances with the Los Angeles Opera, Houston Grand Opera, Glimmerglass Festival, Chicago Opera Theater, Seattle Opera, Portland Opera, Glyndebourne Opera, Maggio Musicale in Florence, Deutsche Oper am Rhein, and Frankfurt Opera. His growing repertoire includes the title roles in Acis and Galatea and Candide, Almaviva in Il barbiere di Siviglia, Nemorino in L'elisir d'amore, Fenton in Falstaff, Tamino in Die Zauberflöte, Don Ottavio in Don Giovanni, and Lurcanio in Ariodante.
