A Bit About Me

Ryan Vaughan Davies

Welsh tenor Ryan Vaughan Davies is currently studying his Masters at the Royal College of Music with Professor Russel Smythe. He is the Ivor Llewelyn Foster Scholar generously supported by the Monika Saunders Award.

At a young age he showed a keen interest in classical music and began to compete nationally in Wales, achieving great success including winning the Blue Ribband prize in 2019.

Ryan made his professional Operatic debut as Second Priest in Longborough Festival Opera's production of Die Zauberflöte, conducted by Anthony Negus and directed by Thomas Guthrie. He has since worked with The Buxton International Festival and The Grange Festival as well as debuting at The Royal Festival Hall and Royal Albert Hall.

During the last year, Ryan has worked at the Grange Festival on their production of Precipice, an outdoors promenade production by Sinéad O'Neill as well as performances in 'Opera under the stars' at the Minnack theatre, Penzance. This Summer Ryan is working for Garsington Opera on their productions of Le Comte Ory and Eugene Onegin, covering the solo peasant in the latter.

 Ryan will be taking his place at the Royal Academy of Music Opera School from September.
