About Ryan Speedo Green
Praised by Anthony Tommasini of the New York Times for his “robust voice” and Anne Midgette of The Washington Post as an artist “fully ready for a big career,” bass-baritone Ryan Speedo Green is quickly establishing himself as an artist of international demand at the world’s leading opera houses. In the 2018 – 2019 season Mr. Green returns to the Metropolitan Opera to sing the King in Aida, conducted by Nicola Luisotti and broadcast to theaters around the world as part of the Met’s Live in HD program, and for a reprise of Colline in La bohème. Mr. Green also returns to the Wiener Staatsoper as a member of the ensemble with roles including Sarastro in Die Zauberflöte, Raimondo in Lucia di Lammermoor, Der Einarmige in Die Frau ohne Schatten, and Lodovico in Otello, among others.
Orchestral engagements for the 2018 – 2019 season include Beethoven’s Symphony No 9 conducted by Marin Alsop at the Ravinia Festival, a debut with the Mostly Mozart Festival singing Mozart’s Requiem with Louis Langrée for the closing night of the festival, and a debut with Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center for Bach’s Ich habe genug with the Orion String Quartet.
