Ryan McAdams joins Keynote

  • We are delighted that the American conductor Ryan McAdams is joining Keynote Artist Management.  Equally at home in the world of opera, symphonic repertoire and contemporary music, he has already established a presence on both sides of the Atlantic. 

    In the 2019/20 season Ryan conducts productions of Les Pêcheurs de Perles for Teatro Regio Torino, Donnacha Dennehy's The Second Violinist with the Dutch National Opera at the Park Avenue Armory in New York and will also lead the revival of Faust at the Zurich Opera with Saimir Pirgu, Ildebrando D'Arcangelo and Anita Hartig.

    This summer he returns to the Ravello Festival and takes the podium once again with the  Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della RAI, with whom he recently toured an all-Beethoven programme around southern Italy - watch the final movement of the 7th here. He joins the Phoenix and Omaha Symphony Orchestras again in the autumn, after successful debuts last season.

    Other recent highlights include Carmen for Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, Madama Butterfly and Le Nozze di Figaro with Lyric Opera of Kansas City and a collaboration with Wynton Marsalis - as well as subscription concerts with the Borusan Istanbul Philharmonic Orchestra, Lirico Sinfonica Petruzzelli di Bari, Kansas City Symphony, Louisiana Philharmonic and the Israel Philharmonic.
