Shenyang

Bariton

Chinese-born bass-baritone Shenyang was propelled into the spotlight in 2007 when he was crowned BBC Cardiff Singer of the World.

After initial studies at the Shanghai Conservatory of Music, he went on to graduate from The Juilliard School, and to join the Metropolitan Opera’s Lindemann Young Artist Development Program. This marked the beginning of an ongoing relationship with the prestigious theatre where he most recently appeared as Sprecher in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte.

Opera highlights of the intervening seasons include the title role in Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro, which he sang at the National Centre for the Performing Arts in Beijing and for Seattle Opera, and Alidoro in Rossini’s La cenerentola, marking his debuts at Glyndebourne Festival, Bavarian State Opera, Zurich Opera and Washington National Opera.

Concert appearances have played a pivotal role in Shenyang’s career to date, amassing an impressive repertoire – from Handel up to contemporary music by Chinese composers.

As a dedicated Lieder singer, Shenyang was awarded the Alice Tully Vocal Arts Award in 2009, going on to make his New York recital debut at Lincoln Center, and appearing in many other venues.

In the 2019/20 season, Shenyang performs for the first time with the Royal Concertgebouw
