Hyesang Park



Hailed by The New York Times for her “bright, clear voice and impressive coloratura technique,” and by Le Devoir for a voice that is “sumptuous, of incredible magnitude,” South Korean soprano Hyesang Park is attracting the attention of opera houses and concert presenters worldwide. She is a member of the Metropolitan Opera’s prestigious Lindemann Young Artists Program.

Following a summer season that includes her United Kingdom opera debut with the Glyndebourne Festival, singing the role of Najade in Strauss’s Ariadne auf Naxos, Miss Park travels to Munich to make her Bayerische Staatsoper debut singing the role of Despina in Mozart’s Cosi fan tutte in September/October 2017. Winter/spring 2018 sees Ms. Park in New York City, returning to the Metropolitan Opera in December/January for two productions: she sings the role of Barbarina in the first six performances of Le Nozze di Figaro (including the Met Broadcast), and the role of The Dew Fairy in Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel. On March 22nd, she performs on Manhattan’s celebrated St. Thomas Church Concert Series, singing Brahms’s Ein deutsches Requiem under the leadership of Music Director Daniel Hyde.

HYESANG PARK is a born performer.”

“Over the last few years, the Juilliard School has become a hotbed for inventive opera productions. So it’s hard not to wish that the beautiful concert performance of Bellini’s “La Sonnambula” on Tuesday evening at the school’s Peter Jay Sharp Theater had been staged.  … If this production lacked scenery and costumes, it offered expressive singing from a gifted cast. As Amina, the fragile, guileless title character of “La Sonnambula” (“The Sleepwalker”), the Korean soprano Hyesang Park showed she has the vocal endowment for this touchstone bel canto role. When we meet her, Amina is brimming with ncredulous joy the night before her marriage to Elvino, a prosperous young farmer. The beguiling aria “Come per me sereno” conveys Amina’s contentment in fine-spun phrases. Yet the music is suffused with curious melancholy, suggesting that this young woman has a troubled psyche. For the most part, Ms. Park shaped the lines beautifully and sang with melting sound and gleaming top notes. Amina’s climactic sleepwalking scene requires both delicate lyricism and daring coloratura agility; Ms. Park had both. …Yet even at the start of her career, she reveals the sadness below the surface of this music.”

“Hyesang Park looked and sounded genuinely lovely, approaching the great role in the old-fashioned, pre-Callas tradition of tonal purity and ethereal roulades. Her downward chromatic scales were most impressive…. Unaffected and gracious onstage, this soprano already exudes star quality.”
