Conductor

Following her critically acclaimed company debut in Dvořák’s Rusalka, Eun Sun Kim has been named the Caroline H. Hume Music Director of San Francisco Opera. Her North American presence was first established with performances of the Verdi Requiem with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and Verdi’s La traviata with Houston Grand Opera, the latter earning her an appointment as the company’s first principal guest conductor in 25 years.

In the 2019–20 season, Ms. Kim conducts the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, L’Orchestre philharmonique de Marseille, and the San Diego, Cincinnati, Oregon, and Seattle symphony orchestras. She continues a series of important operatic debuts with the company premiere of Donizetti’s Roberto Devereux at Los Angeles Opera and Mozart’s The Magic Flute with Washington National Opera at the Kennedy Center, and leads Richard Strauss’s Salome at Houston Grand Opera. Major upcoming debuts include productions with the Vienna Staatsoper, Lyric Opera of Chicago, and The Metropolitan Opera.

In addition to her growing North American presence, Ms. Kim is a regular guest conductor at many important European opera houses. She maintains a particularly close connection with the Berlin Staatsoper, where she has conducted La traviata, Strauss’s Ariadne auf Naxos, Puccini’s Madama Butterfly, and Verdi’s Un ballo in maschera and Il trovatore. She has appeared consistently at opera houses across Germany and Scandinavia, leading Humperdinck’s Hänsel und Gretel at the Bavarian Staatsoper; Verdi’s Rigoletto at Semperoper Dresden; Madama Butterfly at Stuttgart Staatsoper and Royal Swedish Opera; Il trovatore at Royal Danish Opera; Bizet’s Carmen at Den Norske Opera in Oslo, Volksoper Wien, and Opernhaus Zürich; Madama Butterfly and Wagner’s The Flying Dutchman in Bergen; and Bellini’s La Sonnambula and The Flying Dutchman at Oper Frankfurt.

Ms. Kim’s concert appearances include Orchestre de Paris, Gothenburg Symphony, Beethoven Orchestra Bonn, Norwegian Radio Orchestra, and Stuttgart Philharmonic, as well as orchestras in Madrid, Lille, Nancy, Palermo, Turin, Malmö, Umeå, Aarhus, Milwaukee, Calgary, and Santiago de Compostela.

Eun Sun Kim studied composition and conducting in her hometown of Seoul, South Korea, before continuing her studies in Stuttgart, where she graduated with distinction. Directly after graduation, she was awarded the First Prize in the International Jesús López Cobos Opera Conducting Competition at the Teatro Real Madrid.
