Eric Owens

Bass-baritone Eric Owens has a unique reputation as an esteemed interpreter of classic works and a champion of new music. This season he returns to The Metropolitan Opera as both Philippe II in David McVicar’s new production of Verdi’s Don Carlos, conducted by Yannick Nézet-Séguin, and Porgy in James Robinson’s acclaimed production of the Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess. He also returns to Santa Fe Opera as King Marke in Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde. In concert, he joins The Philadelphia Orchestra for Beethoven’s Missa solemnis, also conducted by Nézet-Séguin, and sings Vodnik in Dvořák’s Rusalka with the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra, led by Alan Gilbert.

Owens’s career operatic highlights include the roles of Alberich and Hagen in The Metropolitan Opera’s production of Wagner’s Ring Cycle, directed by Robert Lepage; Wotan and the Wanderer in Lyric Opera of Chicago’s Ring Cycle, directed by David Pountney; and Orest in Patrice Chereau’s production of Richard Strauss’s Elektra, conducted by Esa-Pekka Salonen at The Met.

Eric Owens has been recognized with multiple honors, including the Musical America’s 2017 Vocalist of the Year award, and the 2003 Marian Anderson Award. He was The Mary and James G. Wallach Artist-in-Residence at the New York Philharmonic during the 2015–16 season. He serves on the board of trustees of both the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts and Astral Artistic Services.
