The voice of American tenor Scott Ramsay has been attracting international attention from endorsements made by The Irish Times for his recent European debut as Edgardo in Lucia di Lammermoor at the Dublin International Opera Festival, and by Anthony Tommasini ofThe New York Times, who praised his Lincoln Center debut at Avery Fisher Hall in March 2008, declaring his “bright-voiced tenor . . . impressive.” Earning great respect as a leading tenor on North American stages and abroad, his repertoire encompasses a broad range of roles from Baroque and bel canto to twentieth-century opera. Mr. Ramsay’s 2008–09 season features Carmina Burana and Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony at the Berkshire Choral Festival, Nemorino in L’elisir d’amore with Opera Grand Rapids, the Messiah with the Pacific Symphony Orchestra, Roméo in Roméo et Juliette at Syracuse Opera, and the Painter and Black Man in a new Paul Curran production of Lulu conducted by Sir Andrew Davis at the Lyric Opera of Chicago, a role he will repeat abroad in 2011.
