BIOGRAPHY

     Hailed by The Boston Globe as a "breathtakingly solid" soprano,” the Cleveland Plain Dealer as "fearless," and the Boston Musical Intelligencer as having a "captivatingly expressive strength," contemporary opera specialist Tamara Ryan is known for her nuanced and sensitive portrayals of women experiencing and responding to trauma and loss—a calling that she pursues both as a Boston-based soprano and as the founder and General Director of Opera Fayetteville.

      A graduate of the prestigious Cleveland Institute of Music, Tamara has appeared in recent seasons as Sibyl Vane in Lowell Liebermann's The Picture of Dorian Gray, Stephanie in Jake Heggie's To Hell and Back,  Madame de Tourvel in Conrad Susa's The Dangerous Liaisons, and Almera in Nico Muhly's Dark Sisters, as well as starring in one-woman showpiece, Miss Havisham's Wedding Night and performing the lead role of Sonny in the initial workshop of White Snake Productions' Permadeath

AS DELLA IN DER VAMPYR

"OperaHub’s stellar production of Der Vampyr stands out as one of the most rewarding theatrical events of the season....Both Tamara Ryan, as the independent-minded Della, and Lindsay Conrad, as the formidable 'Vampire Naysayer,' offer breathtakingly solid sopranos that soar and trill without ever becoming shrill or thin. Both develop three-dimensional characters, each with a wildly different approach to defying conventions."
