Orango with Esa-Pekka Salonen and the London Philharmonia

“The only singer who has an extended part is the Entertainer, a kind of carny barker, performed with charismatic gusto by baritone Ryan McKinny in impressive rat-a-tat Russian.”

Huntley Dent, New York Arts

“The very solid cast of 11 soloists was dominated by the charismatic Ryan McKinny as The Entertainer…”

Jim Pritchard, Seen and Heard International

“From among the singers, Ryan McKinny was an Entertainer of tangible malevolence…”

Richard Whitehouse, The Classical Source

“…a brilliantly performed one, with Ryan McKinny as the slick Entertainer introducing Richard Angas’s depressed man-ape to the gawping audience…”

Andrew Clements, The Guardian

“The main role of The Entertainer was sung expertly by the American bass-baritone Ryan McKinny (who also performed the part at the Los Angeles premiere).”
