American tenor Bryan Register has received critical acclaim for the fresh, bright timbre of his voice and strong dramatic singing. This season he makes his debut at the Semperoper Dresden singing Enée in ‘Les Troyens’ in a new production by Lydia Steiner. Recent highlights include his house debut as Enée for Frankfurt Opera in a new production by Eva Maria Höckmayr, conducted by John Nelson, Siegmund in ‘Die Walküre’ for Grange Park Opera, and Tristan at the Tokyo Nikikai Opera Theatre under the baton of Jesús Lopez Cobos. In future seasons, Register will make his debut for La Monnaie and return to Frankfurt Opera.
Further recent highlights include Tristan for Grange Park Opera, Siegmund for Theater Kiel, Beethoven Symphony No.9 with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Florestan for Opera Omaha, the title role in ‘Lohengrin’ at the Hong Kong Arts Festival and at the Savonlinna Opera Festival, and Florestan and Drum Major in ‘Wozzeck’ at English National Opera, conducted by Edward Gardner.
Since moving into Wagnerian repertoire, Register has been sponsored by the Wagner Society of New York and the ‘Emerging Singers Program’ of the Wagner Society of Washington D.C. He was awarded second prize in the 2012 Liederkranz Vocal Competition (Wagner Division), was the winner of the 2008 Gerda Lissner, the 2006 Sullivan Foundation and the Licia Albanese/Puccini competitions and the recipient of a 2006 Grant from the Liederkranz Foundation.
Register trained at the Manhattan School of Music, receiving the Birgit Nilsson Scholarship, and at the studios of the Santa Fe Opera and Glimmerglass Opera.
While at Santa Fe, he covered the roles of Tassilo in ‘Countess Maritza’, Andres in ‘Wozzeck’ and Dr Caius in ‘Falstaff’. Acclaimed for his vocal versatility, Register has been engaged for many new or rarely performed works including roles as The Soldier in ‘Stone Soup’ for Tulsa Opera, Second Bandit in the American premiere of Martinu’s ‘Hlas Lesa’ for Gotham Opera, Sundar in ‘The Thief of Love’, Announcer and Man in ‘Haroun and the Sea of Stories’ and Manno Sacco and Vanzetti with The New York City Opera Orchestra.
