Hei-Kyung Hong, soprano
--With Vlad Iftinca, piano
One of the most highly esteemed principal artists on the roster of the Metropolitan Opera, Korean-American soprano Hei-Kyung Hong commands a voice of unparalleled sweetness and purity. An exquisite musician who has won a loyal international following from London and Paris to Milan and Vienna, Ms. Hong has sung the title role in Verdi's La traviata and Cleopatra in Handel's Julius Caesar to overwhelming audience and critical acclaim for Washington National Opera.
"Almost a quarter-century after her first Met Mimi, Ms. Hong sounded fresh and radiant, her singing distinguished by beautiful phrasing and refined pianissimos." (The New York Times)
