Ron Williams

New Bio

Recognized nationwide for his artistry in the field of opera and oratorio, Ron Williams continues to gather acclaim for his work onstage and in the concert hall. He has sung leading roles with opera companies nationally, including San Francisco Spring Opera, Michigan Opera Theatre and Opera San Jose, where he created the role of Edward in the world premiere of Alva Henderson’s The Last Leaf.

In New England, Williams debuted with Boston Lyric Opera in the revival of Kurt Weill’s Lost in the Stars, receiving critical acclaim from The New York Times. He portrayed nemesis Nick Shadow in the much-heralded production of The Rake’s Progress with Boston’s Opera Lab at the MIT. The Boston Globe praised his performance of Figaro in Opera New England’s The Barber of Seville. With Greater Worcester opera, he has performed Escamillo in Carmen, as well as the title role in Mozart’s Don Giovanni. This spring saw his solo debut with Rhode Island Philharmonic and Boston Youth Symphony Orchestra.
