Ric Furman

 “With his ecstatic dream of the ‘Angel Leonore’, Furman proves instantly what dramatic heights he is capable of with a clean voice and excellent comprehensibility of the text.” 

The tall, attractive American tenor with the radiant voice is also making a career in Europe. His debut as Erik at the Wagner Festival Budapest 2018 was a complete success. Since the 2015/16 season, the American tenor has been engaged at the Hessisches Staatstheater Wiesbaden, singing roles such as Pinkerton, Erik, Dimitri (‘Boris Godunov’), Alvaro (‘La forza del destino’), Rodolfo (‘La Bohème’), Cavaradossi, Pollione (‘Norma’), Kaiser (‘Die Frau ohne Schatten’) and Siegmund. In 2017, he debuted as Prinz in ‘Rusalka’ at the Theater Magdeburg and returned there in autumn 2018 as Siegmund. Press and audience have celebrated him in the fascinating Magdeburg production of ‘Die Walküre’. Further engagements took him to Magdeburg as Anatol (‘Vanessa’) in 2018/19 and to Glasgow as Boris (‘Katja Kabanova’) at the Scottish Opera. In the 2019/20 season, he sang the demanding tenor part of Mahler’s 8th with the Orchestre National de Lille and can be heard as Bacchus (‘Ariadne auf Naxos’) in Weimar, as Matteo in ‘Arabella’ in Leipzig. Augustin Moser fell victim to Corona at the Bayreuth Festival 2020. For this he will be back in Bayreuth in 2021.
Ric Furman is an excellent interpreter of modern operas and, alongside Barber's 'Vanessa' in Heggie's 'Dead Man Walking', Golijov's 'Ainadamar', Susa's 'The Dangerous Liaisons', Stravinsky's 'The Rake's Progress' and two world premieres - 'Eve's Odds' by Bruce Trinkley and 'A Stranger's Tale' by Curtis Tucker.
