Soprano Ying Fang has been hailed by the New York Times for her “singing with a fresh, appealing soprano and acting with coquettish flair.”
In the 2018/19 season, Mozart is the foundation for two auspicious debuts for soprano Fang Ying. In her debut at the Salzburger Festspiele, a new production of Idomeneo reunites her with director Peter Sellars. She also returns to the Metropolitan Opera for a role debut as Servilia in the Jean-Pierre Ponnelle production La Clemenza di Tito.
Another season highlight includes her re-joining the Los Angeles Philharmonic at Walt Disney Hall, in collaboration with The Old Globe (San Diego), as Juno for performances of the incidental music to Shakespeare’s The Tempest by Sibelius conducted by Susanna Mälkki. She makes a return to the New York Philharmonic for performances of the Brahms German Requiem under Jaap van Zweden, and debuts with several orchestras this season. These include The Cleveland Orchestra under the baton of Franz Welser-Möst as Echo in Strauss’s Ariadne auf Naxos, the Boston Symphony Orchestra under Andris Nelsons, the San Francisco Symphony and Houston Symphony with Jane Glover in Handel’s Messiah, the Malaysian Philharmonic under Roberto Abbado, North Carolina Symphony under Carlos Miguel Prieto in Orff’s Carmina Burana, and a Carnegie Hall concert with the Orchestra of St. Luke’s under Bernard Labadie for Mozart’s Concert aria “Venga la morte…Non temer, amato bene”.
