…so appealing and effective…
 Porgy and Bess “Victor Ryan Robertson, donning a bright pink suit, plays Sportin’ Life with panache. His flexible tenor voice is so appealing with his passionate facial expressions and motions.” – The Post and Courier 
…a beautifully lyric tenor voice…
Falstaff “Victor Ryan Robertson has a beautifully lyric tenor voice, which he used flawlessly as Fenton. The Act III aria was true Verdian bel canto. His ardent and rapturous duets with Anya Matanovic, his Nannetta were delightful moments of amorous repose in a sea of turmoil.” Opera News
…both controlled and attractive…
Don Giovanni “Victor Ryan Robertson was an unusually forceful Don Ottavio – this youth seemed quite capable of avenging his fiancee’s wrongs. His singing was both controlled and attractive, making one regret that ‘Dalla sua pace’ had been cut.”Opera News
…genuinely moving…
 Champion  “Victor Ryan Robertson portrays both Benny Paret and his son, whose meeting with the muddled Griffith is genuinely moving.”– Dallas Morning News 
…delivers body and soul…
La bohème  “Victor Ryan Robertson’s dashing Rudolfo…he delivers body and soul…”The Independent
American tenor Victor Ryan Robertson offers a versatile singing ability and style allowing him to cross seamlessly between genres. From opera repertoire to pop music, and everything in between, Robertson delights international audiences to critical acclaim. Of a recent performance of Nemorino in L’elisir d’amore, The Arts Louisville raved: “Nemorino is played by the handsome Victor Ryan Robertson… His beautiful tenor and staggering ability to convey simple, soaring emotion is made very clear in Una furtiva lagrima; simple and moving.” This season, he will reprise his performance as Benny Paret Jr. in Champion with Washington National Opera and will reprise the role of Count Almaviva in Il barbiere di Siviglia with Opera Coeur d’Alene, Toledo Opera, Opera Carolina, and Santa Cruz Symphony. Mr. Robertson will also be making his Broadway debut this season in, “Broadway’s longest running musical,” The Phantom of the Opera.

Recent engagements include Mr. Robertson starring in the world première of Terence Blanchard’s Champion, creating the role of Benny Paret/Benny Paret Jr. in a landmark production with Opera Theatre St. Louis.  He subsequently performed the role with Opera Parallele.  He also performed Le Capitaine and Prince Ragotski in Candide with Opéra national de Lorraine in Nancy, France; Rinuccio in Gianni Schicchi with Opera Carolina; and performed Three Mo’ Tenors in concert in Los Angeles, the Dominican Republic, and Houston.  He also performed the role of Zoogy in Carly Simon’s ambitious contemporary opera Romulus Hunt at Nashville Opera, Nadir in Bizet’s Les pêcheurs de perles with Dayton Opera, and Alfredo in La traviata in concert with Atlanta Opera. Additionally, he was recently seen in a Bank of America commercial.

Widely noted for the portrayal of Count Almaviva in Il barbiere di Siviglia, he has performed the role with the Minnesota Opera, Opera Carolina, Michigan Opera Theatre, Manitoba Opera, PORT Opera, and Arizona Opera.  Another signature role in his repertoire is Sportin’ Life in Porgy and Bess, a role he has performed with the Los Angeles Opera, Syracuse Opera, Dallas Opera, at the Deutsche Oper Berlin, throughout Australia, on tour in London, Edinburgh, and Cardiff with the Cape Town Opera, and Spoleto Festival USA.

Mr. Robertson made his European début at the Royal Albert Hall in London as Rodolfo in Francesca Zambello’s production of La bohème to wide acclaim. The Guardian says he “offers an appealing, well-defined tenor with plenty of energy.” The Independent praised his “dashing Rodolfo…he delivers body and soul.”  He recently returned to the UK to perform Rinaldo in Armida with the Garsington Opera in England.

Additional engagements from recent seasons include his role début as Eurimedes in Telemann’s Orpheus with New York City Opera; Ramiro in La Cenerentola with Spoleto Festival U.S.A; his Dallas Opera début in title role of Les contes d’Hoffmann; Tonio in La fille du régiment at Lyric Opera of Kansas City; Fenton in Falstaff with Opera Cleveland; Don Ottavio in Don Giovanni with Opera Carolina; Prunier in La rondine with Michigan Opera Theatre; Tybalt in Roméo et Juliette with Atlanta Opera and Arizona Opera; his role début as Camille in The Merry Widow and Nemorino in L’elisir d’amore with Kentucky Opera; a concert tour in Shanghai with the Honolulu Symphony; and a Pavarotti Tribute concert with the Sunshine Pops.

Mr. Robertson first earned critical acclaim as Rodolfo in Baz Luhrman’s adaptation of Puccini’s La bohème at The Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles in a record 82 consecutive sold out shows.  Since, he has appeared as one of the tenors in performances of Three Mo’ Tenors in New York City and on tour throughout the world and World Tenors Unleashed, and exciting new project produced by the creators of Three Mo’ Tenors. Quickly getting noticed for his extremely versatile vocal ability, Mr. Robertson’s talents will soon be bringing him to some of the greatest stages of both concert performance and theatre.
