Biography

Grammy Award–winning bass-baritone Ryan Speedo Green has quickly established himself as an artist in international demand at the world’s leading opera houses. The 2022–23 season sees his first leading role at The Metropolitan Opera, starring as Emile Griffith in Terence Blanchard’s Champion, conducted by Yannick Nézet-Séguin and directed by James Robinson. Green also makes his Opéra national de Paris debut, singing Kurwenal in Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde, conducted by Gustavo Dudamel, and his Bavarian Staatsoper debut, as Varlaam in Musorgsky’s Boris Godunov. He also returns to Washington National Opera to sing Ferrando in a new production of Verdi’s Il Trovatore and Orest in a new production of Richard Strauss’s Elektra.

In addition to his New York Philharmonic debut in the World Premiere of Gathering Song, composed by Courtney Bryan, with a libretto by Tazewell Thompson, written for him, his orchestral engagements include Kurwenal with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Musorgsky’s Songs and Dances of Death at Carnegie Hall with Daniele Rustioni conducting the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, and selections from Blanchard’s Champion with the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra Chamber Ensemble at Carnegie Hall, conducted by Yannick Nézet-Séguin. Green also appears as a featured artist on the Richard Tucker Gala. This academic season sees him serve as artist-in-residence with Florida State University, a role that includes master classes with vocal students and a solo recital.

In the fall of 2016 Little, Brown, and Co. published Sing for Your Life, by New York Times journalist Daniel Bergner. The book tells the story of Green’s personal and artistic journey from a trailer park in southeastern Virginia to Virginia’s juvenile facility of last resort to The Met stage.
