Ying Huang

Ying Huang has appeared in operas at The Metropolitan Opera, Brussels' Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie, Royal Danish Opera, Cologne Opera House, and China National Center of Performing Arts. She has performed major roles in Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro, The Magic Flute, and Don Giovanni; Donizetti's L'elisir d'amore; Verdi's Rigoletto and Falstaff; Massenet's Werther; and Richard Strauss's Der Rosenkavalier. She became the first Chinese vocalist to star in an opera movie when she played Cio-Cio San in Frédéric Mitterrand's 1995 film of Puccini's Madame Butterfly. In December 2006 she starred in The Magic Flute at The Metropolitan Opera, the first in the globally broadcast "Met HD Live" series. In 2009 she was selected for the "Wall of Fame" in the Met's 125th Anniversary celebration.

Equally devoted to Chinese contemporary opera, Ms. Huang worked with Tan Dun to prepare the opera The First Emperor and starred in his Peony Pavilion, Guo Wenjing's The Poet Li Po, and others. In 2011 she played the title role in the premiere production of Zhou Long's Madame White Snake, which won the Pulitzer Prize.

On the concert stage, Ying Huang has appeared regularly with the New York Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, London Symphony Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, and SWR Radio Orchestra. She has sung at Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, and the Goldener Saal in Vienna's Musikverein. Her festival engagements have included the Mostly Mozart Festival, Festival d'Automne à Paris, Vienna's Festwochen, Cincinnati Music Festival, Beijing International Music Festival, and Shanghai's Music in the Summer Air.

A recording artist for Sony Classical, Ying Huang has recorded Roger Waters's Ça Ira with Bryn Terfel and Paul Groves, arias with James Conlon and the London Symphony Orchestra, Richard Danielpour's Sonnets to Orpheus, and Bitter Love, a concise version of Peony Pavilion composed and conducted by Tan Dun.
