An award-winning baritone, Ryan Hofman is thrilled to be singing with New Opera Lyra this season.

Mr. Hofman most recently returned to Southern Ontario Lyric Opera this past May as Marchese d’Obigny in Verdi’s La Traviata, where other company credits include: Masetto in Don Giovanni, Betto in Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi and Marullo in Verdi’s Rigoletto.  

In September 2020, Ryan was also one of two Canadian singers invited to sing as part of the Grandi Voci Competition in Salzburg, Austria.  

As audiences continue to respond to Mr. Hofman’s warm baritone voice and insightful dramatic and musical interpretations, he continues to be in demand across the country.

In September 2019, Ryan made his solo debut as the title character in Grieg’s Peer Gynt with the National Arts Centre Orchestra. In May, he also made his debut with the Ottawa Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Alain Trudel in an operatic program featuring renowned Canadian soprano, Measha Brueggergosman-Lee. 

He will also be performing the role of Tom Buchanan in New Opera Lyra's 2024 premiere of Ager's "The Great Gatsby".

Ryan has recently pivoted into the arts management world and is excited to be working alongside New Opera Lyra as Artistic Consultant and Outreach Officer.
