Nicholas Nelson


Nicholas Nelson is excited to be making his third appearance with nimbus. Previously he appeared as Stanley in From Darkness and The Actor in The Lower Depths. Last fall, he appeared in the Classical Actors Ensemble double bill as Stephano in The Tempest and Valdes/Duke in Doctor Faustus. Earlier this year, Nicholas had the pleasure of narrating  Pine Eyes for Zeitgeist.  In addition to his work in spoken theater, Nicholas frequently performs as an operatic bass. His most recent operatic roles are Colline in La Bohème with Lakes Area Music Festival, Sarastro in The Magic Flute with the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra and Larkens in La Fanciulla del West with Minnesota Opera. From 2010-2013, he was a Resident Artist with Portland Opera. Later this month, he will be joining Dreamland Faces as they provide live musical accompaniment of the silent film The Unknown at the Heights Theater. When not performing in theatre and opera, Nicholas is active as a guitarist and thereminist.
