Timothy Nolen is an American actor and opera singer.


Born in Rotan, Texas, Nolen became a supporting actor in the San Francisco Opera, performing as a baritone. Since then he appeared in a wide range of operatic productions as well as the operatic production of Sondheim's Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.


Making his debut with Christophe Colomb in 1968 with the San Francisco Opera, Nolen performed extensive work with the company, notably in 1973 where he was in nine seperate productions, including Rigoletto and La Bohème. In 1976, he played the lead in The Barber of Seville and in 1984 he played Sweeney in an operatic version of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.

The following year Nolen performed in his first mainstream Broadway musical, Grind, which was not a success. Despite this, Nolen was soon cast as The Phantom in The Phantom of the Opera.

In 1993, Nolen appeared as De Guiche in Cyrano: The Musical and later took over as Cyrano. He would later reprise his role in Sweeney Todd and in the Philharmonic Concert would play Todd's nemesis, Judge Turpin.
