Opera and Christianity
Tenor Nolan Kehler graduated from CMU in 2017 with a Bachelor in Music with a vocal performance concentration before earning a Master's in Music from the University of Victoria. He has since performed on stages throughout North America, including with Manitoba Opera, the Little Opera Company of Winnipeg, Manitoba UNDERGROUND Opera, and Flipside Opera and Art Song Collective. When he isn’t performing, Nolan can be heard on the airwaves as he presents classical music segments on the weekends across Canada on CBC Radio 1.

Join tenor Nolan Kehler as he explores how Christianity has appeared over the course of four centuries of opera history, and how it has affected timeless stories by composers from Puccini to Verdi to Wagner.
