Eric Owens has a unique reputation as an esteemed interpreter of classic works and a champion of new music. Equally at home in orchestral, recital, and operatic repertoire, Mr. Owens brings his powerful poise, expansive voice, and instinctive acting faculties to stages around the world. While Mr. Owens has performed at The Metropolitan Opera, Washington National Opera, San Francisco Opera, Covent Garden, Glimmerglass, and many more; he began his professional career many years ago with us as a Young Artist performing at Ash Lawn Opera.
