Gabor Andrasy made his Seattle Opera debut as Hunding and Hagen in the 1987 production of Wagner’s Ring des Nibelungen. He returned to Seattle Opera for the next 16 years, singing such roles as the Commendatore in Mozart’s Don Giovanni, Sarastro in Mozart’s Zauberflöte, Daland in Wagner’s Fliegende Holländer, El Capitán in Catán’s Florencia en el Amazonas, and Ezra Mannon in Levy’s Mourning Becomes Electra. In all, Andrasy sang 127 performances of 18 roles at Seattle Opera. In France, his roles have included Dansker in Britten’s Billy Budd in Paris, King Marke in Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde in Nantes, and the title role of Mussorgsky’s Boris Godunov in Strausbourg. In the U.S., Andrasy has sung with San Francisco Opera, Dallas Opera, Houston Grand Opera, Washington Opera, and Los Angeles Opera, among others. His many roles included several premieres: Frère Bernard in Messaien’s St. François d’Assise, Michaud in Picker’s Thérèse Raquin, and the Commander in Ruders’ Handmaid’s Tale. Seattle Opera dedicated its 2004 performances of Wagner’s Lohengrin in memory of Gabor Andrasy, who passed away July 14, 2004.
