Sun, September 24, 2017, 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM EDT
New York Times critic Anthony Tommasini praised Ying Fang: “A warm, agile and appealing voice; a star in the making.” Now a principal soprano at the Met, Ms. Fang sang Elvira in L’Italiana in Algeri and Jano in Jenufa last fall. In 2017 she has the lead role of Ilia in Mozart’s Idomeno. A native of Ningbo, China, Ying Fang was one of the youngest recipients of the Chinese Golden Bell Award for Music in 2009. Recent solo recitals at Alice Tully Hall and for Vocal Arts DC at the Kennedy Center won accolades. DC fans remember her at Wolf Trap Opera, notably in Giulio Cesare (2014). “The lyrical soprano Ying Fang…dazzled as a fashion-plate Cleopatra.”—Anne Midgette, The Washington Post.
