Tenor

The Canadian tenor Lance Ryan studied with the Italian opera singers Gianni Raimondi and Carlo Bergonzi, and launched his career in Italy, where he won the 2002 AsLiCo Competition. He moved to Germany in 2005, where he mastered the main roles for his Fach – Heldentenor – as a member of the ensemble of the Badisches Staatstheater in Karlsruhe.

Ryan has since garnered acclaim singing Siegfried in Wagner’s Siegfried and Götterdämmerung, Erik in Der fliegende Holländer, Bacchus in Richard Strauss’s Ariadne auf Naxos and the title role of Verdi’s Otello. He is in high demand as an opera soloist throughout Europe, and in New York, St Petersburg and Shanghai.

Ryan is also active as a concert artist, having performed Janáček’s Glagolitic Mass with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Pierre Boulez and Schoenberg’s Gurre-Lieder with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Strasbourg under the baton of Marc Albrecht.

His first performances with the Concertgebouworkest were in June and July 2017, when he sang Herod in Richard Strauss’s Salome under the direction of Daniele Gatti at the Dutch National Opera.
