Spyres made his debut at the Teatro San Carlo in Naples in 2006, playing Jaquino in Beethoven's Fidelio. He then appeared as Alberto in Rossini's La gazzetta at the Rossini in Wildbad festival in Germany, and went to Japan as part of a touring production of La traviata. Invited back to Bad Wildbad, he scored a breakthrough in the title role of Rossini's Otello in 2008. Since then, Spyres has appeared in major opera houses, including La Scala and Covent Garden, under the likes of Riccardo Muti, Sir John Eliot Gardiner, Sir Mark Elder, Valery Gergiev, Emmanuelle Haïm.

In addition to appearing on recordings of operas by Donizetti, Rossini, Berlioz, and Giovanni Simone Mayr, Spyres has released the recital albums A Fool for Love (2011) and Espoir (2017). The latter explored the repertoire of 19th century tenor Gilbert Duprez, who sang both French and Italian opera. In 2016 Spyres returned to Springfield as artistic director of the Springfield Regional Opera.
