As the winner of the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World in 2007, Shenyang was immediately propelled into the spotlight with an array of international engagements including debuts at the Metropolitan Opera, Glyndebourne Festival, Bayerische Staatsoper, Opernhaus Zürich and Washington National Opera. A decade on, this Chinese Bass-baritone has established himself as one of the finest voices of his generation, amassed an expansive repertoire for both the opera and concert stages, and enjoys enduring relationships with a wide range of today’s pre-eminent conductors.

Highlights include his debut as Kurwenal (Tristan und Isolde) under Robin Ticciati for the Glyndebourne Festival, Creon (Oedipus Rex) under Kirill Petrenko for the Berliner Philharmoniker, and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 under Yannick Nézet-Séguin for the Philadelphia Orchestra.
