Hailed for his “sweet, silky baritone” and “charming and witty” stage presence, Korean bass-baritone Jongwon Han is making a name for himself as one of the top young artists on the rise.

This season, Mr. Han will join the Santa Fe Opera as an Apprentice Artist, covering the role of Bartolo in Il barbiere di Siviglia. He made his professional debut at the Vernazza Opera Festival (Cinque Terre, Italy) and has been featured in concert in Osaka, Japan, Seoul, South Korea, and New York City. His operatic roles include the title roles in Don Giovanni and Le nozze di Figaro, Masetto in Don Giovanni, Schaunard in La bohème, and Barone Douphol in La traviata.
