John Relyea

Winner of the 2009 Beverly Sills Award and 2003 Richard Tucker Award, John Relyea has appeared on many of the world’s great operatic stages, including The Metropolitan Opera, San Francisco Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Paris Opéra, Teatro alla Scala (Milan), Mariinsky Theater (St. Petersburg, Russia), and The Royal Opera, Covent Garden (London). His diverse repertoire includes the title roles in Verdi’s Attila, Massenet’s Don Quichotte, Rachmaninoff’s Aleko, Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro, and Bartók’s Bluebeard’s Castle, as well as Bertram in Meyerbeer’s Robert the Devil, the Four Villains in Offenbach’s The Tales of Hoffmann, Marke in Wagner’s Tristan and Isolde, King Phillip in Verdi’s Don Carlo, Caspar in Weber’s Der Freischütz, Nick Shadow in Stravinsky’s The Rake’s Progress, Collatinus in Britten’s The Rape of Lucretia, and The Water Sprite in Dvořák’s Rusalka.

In concert, Mr. Relyea has performed with major orchestras including Hamburg’s NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra; Berlin, New York, and Vienna philharmonic orchestras; The Cleveland and Philadelphia Orchestras; and the London, Chicago, Boston, Atlanta, Dallas, and San Francisco symphony orchestras. He has appeared at the Hollywood Bowl; the Tanglewood, Ravinia, Salzburg, Edinburgh, Lucerne, and Mostly Mozart festivals; and at the BBC Proms.

This season Mr. Relyea returns to the Paris Opéra for Bluebeard’s Castle and to the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma as Claggart in Britten’s Billy Budd; performs with the New York Philharmonic, Boston Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre de Paris, Netherlands Radio Philharmonic, and Sydney Symphony Orchestra; and makes his debut at the Teatro di San Carlo as Fiesco in Verdi’s Simon Boccanegra.
