Ryan McKinny as Escamillo in Berlin

Ryan McKinny, the winner of the Birgit Nilsson Prize for 2010, sings "Die Frist ist um" at La Scala in 2010. The Dutchman has been condemned to sail the seas forever with his only respite coming every seven years. The seven years have at last passed again and the Dutchman is to go on land again. The only thing he truly wants, though, is death but he is not allowed to die.

McKinny is showing off his formidable vocal skills as Escamillo in Bizet's "Carmen" from June 25-30 at eh Dresden Semperoper. Click HERE for tickets and performance details.

  1. Fortunately for us McKinny is singing his first Johanaan in New Orleans on 3/2 and 4, (2012). I had not heard of him until the sitzprobe last week and then I made it my business to hear him in a mini-recital yesterday, and now I have a new favorite bass-barihunk. Both he and his wife are darlings to talk with, and he's gorgeous, but it's the voice that seals the deal. OMG!
