Eric Owens

Acclaimed for his commanding stage presence and inventive artistry, American bass-baritone Eric Owens has carved a unique place in the contemporary opera world as both an esteemed interpreter of classic works and a champion of new music. Equally at home in concert, recital, and opera performances, Owens continues to bring his powerful poise, expansive voice, and instinctive acting faculties to stages around the world. During the 2012-2013 season, Owens appears in Bellini's I Capuleti e i Montecchi at the San Francisco Opera alongside Joyce DiDonato and Nicole Cabell, and in Puccini's Madama Butterfly at the Los Angeles Opera. After a performance of Elijah by Mendelssohn with Pacific Chorale, Owens is a soloist in Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 with the Seattle Symphony.
