Greer Grimsley takes on Beethoven and Wagner at the Seattle Opera

Greer Grimsley as Wotan
Greer Grimsley has become the low voice of choice at the Seattle Opera and has developed a loyal following of fans. Tonight he closes as the villainous Don Pizarro in Beethoven's Fidelio. You can hear him discuss the role below on Seattle's ArtZone with Nancy Guppy [the clip begins at 5:30].

Of course, people on both coasts are excited about Grimsley's 2013 schedule when he showcases his heralded portrayal of Wotan in Richard Wagner's Ring Cycle.  On May 4th, he'll open in the Ring Cycle at the Metropolitan Opera before returning to Seattle on August 4th to reprise the role of Wotan.

Seattle Opera's award-winning production is inspired by the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest and has been a sold-out success in 2001, 2005 and 2009. Order you tickets online.
