Gavan Ring


The baritone Gavan Ring comes from County Kerry in Ireland. He studied at the Royal Irish Academy of Music in Dublin and acquired his first stage experiences at the National Opera Studio in London. He made his debut at the Glyndebourne Festival Opera in 2012, and in 2013 he won second prize at the Wigmore International Song Competition. Since then, Ring has appeared especially as a Mozart singer: as Nardo in La finta giardiniera at the Glyndebourne Festival, Don Giovanni at Welsh National Opera, and Guglielmo in Così fan tutte at Opera North in Leeds, where he will also sing Papageno in The Magic Flute in January. In the summer of 2018, he undertook the role of Olivier in Strauss’s Capriccio at Garsington Opera, and last season he also went on a European tour with the Ensemble Matheus led by Jean-Christophe Spinosi. Gavan Ring’s concert repertoire ranges from the Passions of Bach to Britten’s War Requiem.
