Although particularly identified with the Italian repertory, Ryan Edwards has also enjoyed great acclaim for his performances of French opera.  He has sung Albert in Werther with the Metropolitan Opera, Zurga in Les Pêcheurs de Perles with the Opera Company of Philadelphia, and Athanael in Thaïs with the Greater Miami Opera.  The Miami Herald reported:  “Ryan Edwards made a dynamic debut as Athanael, giving the tortured monk Leonine stature.  He has the denunciatory fury demanded by the story and the score.”
