RYAN BROWN

Ryan Brown is the founder, conductor, and artistic director of Opera Lafayette. Through his work with Opera Lafayette, he has gained an international reputation for his interpretations of French opera and for his rôle in the revival of significant works from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. His frequent performances of Italian works by Mozart, Haydn, Paisiello and Cimarosa have also met with acclaim. He has led three Opera Lafayette productions at the Opéra Royal in Versailles: Monsigny’s Le Roi et le fermier, Philidor’s Les Femmes Vengées, and Mozart’s Così fan tutte. In 2015 he conducted Vivaldi’s Catone in Utica for the Glimmerglass Festival. Recent Opera Lafayette programmes have included a production of Rameau’s Les Fêtes de l’Hymen et de l’Amour, ou Les Dieux d’Égypte notable for its integration of three different dance companies, and the rediscovery of operas from the period of the French Revolution. In early 2017 Ryan Brown and Opera Lafayette present the modern première of Gaveaux and Bouilly’s Léonore, ou l’Amour Conjugal, to be followed in 2018 by Beethoven’s Leonore (1805). Ryan Brown was raised in a musical family in California, and performed extensively as a violinist and chamber musician before turning his attentions to conducting. His teachers included Dorothy DeLay and Gustav Meier. Ryan Brown is a recipient of La Médaille d’Or du Rayonnement Culturel from La Renaissance Française.
