Reviews in for Ryan McKinny's Figaro at Washington National Opera

“Bass-baritone Ryan McKinny brings charm and virility to the role of Figaro. Seen last season in the dual roles of Donner and Gunther in the epic RING CYCLE at WNO, McKinny here shows off his comic chops and his shining voice as the Count's wily valet. McKinny's "Se vuol ballare" and "Non piu andrai" were just about perfect. His aria in the latter part of the opera, when Figaro is convinced his Susanna has cuckolded him with the Count, "Aprite un po'quegli occhi," was magnificent.”

Jeffrey Walker, Broadway World

“McKinny livens up his manservant with a fair bit of silliness and jumping about and also gives him some leading-man gravitas with his luxuriant bass-baritone.”

Kate Wingfield, Metro Weekly

“Ryan McKinny had the strongest vocal outing as Figaro, matched by the best comic timing.“ Charles T. Downey, Washington Classical Review

"Ryan McKinny’s Figaro navigates quick thinking in comically compromising situations, duets with his love Susanna, and his rage-filled aria about unfaithful women, his resonant bass-baritone carrying us through Mozart’s timeless work.”

Julia Hurley, DC Metro Theater Arts

Amfortas: "Bin ein positiver Mensch"

Von Wolfgang Karl

BAYREUTH. So hinfällig wirkt er gar nicht, im Gegenteil: Ryan McKinny wirkt im Interview lockler, entspannt und ziemlich fit. Auf der Bühne ist er Amfortas, ein Gralskönig als Schmerzensmann. Im normalen Leben ist er ein "positiver Mensch", sagt er. Ein Amfortas, dem der Gral von Bayreuth Freude gibt.
