*****

“Its brilliant use of computer graphic backgrounds and acrobatic mimes shows one can stage a truly modern, theatrically advantageous Ring without distorting its genuinely central concepts - Wagner's.”

Gramophone Magazine

June 2010

“Ryan is a formidable stage-presence in both these music dramas...[He] can fine down the sound to spin a properly lyrical thread, and in his dying salutation to Brünnhilde rounds off a performance remarkable not just for its tireless stamina but for its musical and dramatic sensitivity.”
