Bass-baritone Greer Grimsley is internationally recognized as an outstanding singing actor and one of today's most prominent Wagnerian singers. His interpretation of Wotan has brought him to esteemed opera houses around the world, and he has sung the role in complete Ring cycles with the Metropolitan Opera, Seattle Opera, San Francisco Opera and Deutsche Oper Berlin, among others. This summer, he made his long-awaited debut at the Bayreuth Festival in the title role of Der fliegende Holländer, earning praise for the particular humanity of his Dutchman, and also sang Wotan in the festival's Die Walküre. He has earned critical acclaim for his treatments of some of Wagner's other greatest characters, including Telramund in Lohengrin, Kurwenal in Tristan und Isolde and Amfortas in Parsifal.
