The American bass-baritone stole the show as Alberich in the Met’s Ring in 2010, and last October he scored as Wotan at Chicago’s Lyric Opera. In 2014 he was praised for his bass solos in the Sellars/Rattle/Berlin Phil St. Matthew Passion. Last season he was the NY Phil’s artist-in-residence. In September 2010, at 41, Eric Owens became the unexpected star of the Metropolitan Opera’s new Das Rheingold. —Heidi Waleson, opera critic of the Wall Street Journal.
