Nathan Hull, 69, Founder and Artistic Director of Amore Opera, has Died

Detroit, MI, January 10, 1951 — New York, NY, August 9, 2020  

A VETERAN PERFORMER, director and producer in New York-area performances of opera and operetta, Hull was a baritone stalwart at Manhattan’s Amato Opera for more than a decade. In 2009, when Amato Opera ceased operations after sixty years, Hull was a key member of the group of Amato singers, administrators and board members who formed Amore Opera, a group conceived to continue Amato Opera’s mission of presenting affordable opera performances in New York City. Hull served as Amore’s first president and artistic director, and staged several shows for the company, including Don Giovanni (2015), the U.S. stage premiere of Donizetti’s Zingara (2017) and the U.S. stage premiere of Meyerbeer’s Dinorah (2019)

Other groups with which Hull was associated as performer and/or stage director included Bronx Opera, Regina Opera, The Village Light Opera Group and Blue Hill Troupe. An alumnus of Indiana University and Catholic University, Hull taught for forty years in New York University’s Computer Science Department, and was twice the recipient of NYU CAS Outstanding Teaching Award. spacer
