Ryan McKinny press reviews

“Hercules is ideally cast with Ryan McKinny. He imparts to the adolescent warrior a thoroughly self- ironic character without drifting into slap-stick. His sonorous baritone is wielded with elegance at all times, despite all the demanding stage action.” —Ingo Rekatzky, Leipzig Almanac, May 12, 2010 – Hercules in 'Alceste' in Peter Konwitschny’s new production at Oper Leipzig

“Young bass-baritone Ryan McKinny made an impressive CSO debut in a variety of roles, handling the twisting challenges of Tiresias with aplomb.” —Lawrence A. Johnson, Chicago Classical Review, February 19, 2010 – Oedipus Rex with Michael Tilson Thomas & the Chicago Symphony Orchestra

"For a work so strongly unified in sombreness, the effect was to throw into relief the variety of colours that McKinny could draw from his voice...McKinny's bass-baritone has a naturally attractive edge and even strength over the entire range. With remarkable control and stamina he managed to draw on the purity of German vowels to create new sounds and vocal textures right to the end." —Peter McCallum, Sydney Morning Herald, January 26, 2010 – Schubert's 'Winterreise' at the Sydney Festival
