In 2019, soprano Eva Kong sang the title role in Opera Australia’s touring production of Madama Butterfly and made her début as Violetta in La traviata in Seoul, South Korea; she also appeared as soprano soloist in Iris dévoilée for Sydney Symphony and sang Kumudha in A Flowering Tree for Opera Queensland.  She returns to Opera Australia in 2021 as Woglinde in their new production of Der Ring des Nibelungen.

For Opera Australia in 2017-2018, she appeared in The Nose, Parsifal and Great Opera Hits and sang Madame Mao in The Nixon Tapes for the Sydney Opera Hose Trust; she also sang La Charmeuse in Thaïs and took the sopranos solos in Carmina Burana for the Melbourne Symphony and sang Donna Anna in Opera Queensland’s Don Giovanni.

Her performance as Laura in Luisa Miller for Opera Australia earned her a Green Room Award.  For the national company, she has also sung Donna Anna in Don Giovanni and Liù in Turandot.

Eva received a Helpmann Award Nomination for Best Female in a Supporting Role and was a Green Room Award Winner for Best Female in a Supporting Role – both in 2014 for her commanding appearance as Madame Mao in Nixon in China for Victorian Opera.
