American bass-baritone Ryan McKinny has been praised for his “elegant and articulate” vocalism (OC Register), as well as a powerful voice that “drips with gold.” (Opera News)

In the 2017-2018 season, McKinny will debut at the San Francisco Opera in the world premiere of John Adams’ Girls of the Golden West in a production by Peter Sellars and will sing his first performances of Mandryka in a new production of Arabella directed by Uwe Laufenberg at Staatstheater Wiesbaden. He returns to Santa Fe Opera as J. Robert Oppenheimer in John Adams’ Dr. Atomic and makes his role debut in the title role of Eugene Onegin at Hawaii Opera Theater. With Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony, he performs Arias and Barcarolles to celebrate the 100th birthday of Leonard Bernstein.
