Acclaimed for his commanding stage presence and inventive artistry, Grammy Award®-winning 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 2011-2012 season, Owens appeared in recital with Robert Spano at Zankel Hall, the centerpiece of a coast-to-coast recital tour that also features pianist Craig Rutenberg. He returned to Carnegie Hall twice more in the spring: with the Boston Symphony in Beethoven's Missa Solemnis, and as Jochanaan in a concert version of Salome with the Cleveland Orchestra, under the baton of Franz Welser-Möst. At the Metropolitan Opera, Owens returned as the vengeful Alberich in the final installments of Robert Lepage's new Ring Cycle, Siegfried and Götterdämmerung, both of which were broadcast live in high definition to cinemas around the world. He also joined Pinchas Zukerman and the National Arts Centre Orchestra for Verdi's Requiem, and reprised his role as The Storyteller in A Flowering Tree with Robert Spano and the Atlanta Symphony.
