STREETCAR WITH RENEE FLEMING A SMASH HIT AT LA OPERA

“Ryan McKinny is a volatile, animalistic Stanley, whose cry of “Stella!” shakes the rafters... Watching him with Fleming is like watching a leopard stalk a gazelle.” - The Daily News

“L.A. Opera has found a believable cast with McKinny's unquestionably virile Stanley.” - Los Angeles Times

”McKinny’s sensuality, physicality and large dramatic baritone provide an indelible portrait...” - Opera Warhorses

“Ryan McKinny as Stanley not only looks the part but also conveys the twin qualities of menace and neediness so central to the role.  Without benefit of an aria to bolster his performance, bass baritone McKinny sings with enough power and conviction to make his character soar as the perpetrator of disaster.  Even when conveying rage, McKinny’s voice is never strident, but remains fluid and rich.” 
Seen and Heard International

“Stella has the first aria, “I can hardly stand it when he’s away.” We can understand why when Stanley, the buff and sinewy Ryan McKinny whose rich and resonant baritone weighs more than he does, arrives home from work, takes off his sweaty wife-beater undershirt, and stalks around his lair getting acquainted with his hoity-toity sister-in-law.” - Santa Barbara Independent
