Ryan Speedo Green in Concert

Internationally acclaimed bass-baritone Ryan Speedo Green returns to Austin Opera in November for a concert at the new Austin PBS Media Center. Austin Opera’s groundbreaking Opera ATX program partners with Austin PBS to present and record the concert live for national distribution PBS.

In demand at the world’s leading opera houses and concert halls, Ryan Speedo Green has most recently received praise for his featured roles at the Metropolitan Opera in Terrence Blanchard’s Champion and Fire Shut up in my Bones and Gerswhin’s Porgy and Bess, an opera for which he won a Grammy Award.

Adam Nielsen, pianist, coach, chorus master, and assistant conductor for Juilliard’s Marcus Institute of Vocal Arts will collaborate with Mr. Green on the program.

Bella Noche de Música on Austin PBS

Gather around your television or set your DVR for the premiere of Austin Opera’s Bella Noche de Música on Austin PBS on Friday, October 13 at 8:00 p.m. CDT.

Celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month by reliving Bella Noche de Música! In April, thousands of Austinites joined us at the Moody Amphitheater at Waterloo Park for the tour-de-force celebratory concert of opera and Latinx music. Now you can revisit this magical concert or experience it for the first time thanks to our partnership with Austin PBS.

The program features artists from the national opera company of Mexico, Ópera de Bellas Artes: Génesis González; Ricardo Ceballos; and Jorge Echeagaray. They are joined by Austin Opera Curator of Hispanic and Latinx Programming, Claudia Chapa, Trío Chapultepec, comprising Vincent Pequeño, Israel Alcala, and William Carlton Galvez, and classical guitarist, Arnold Yzaguirre. Featured is the Austin Opera Orchestra led by Sarah and Ernest Butler Music Director Timothy Myers. See Ms. Chapa and Trío Chapultepec perform live again in February’s production of Cruzar la Cara de la Luna at the Long Center!

This concert is airing on PBS across the nation. Check your location station schedule for showtimes.
