Kang Wang


Australian-Chinese tenor Kang Wang is one of the most sought-after young lyric tenors in the opera world. He is a former member of the Lindemann Young Artist Development Program of the Metropolitan Opera and was a finalist in the 2017 Cardiff Singer of the World competition.

This season, Kang makes his house and role debut at Washington National Opera as Ferrando in Così fan tutte. He also makes his house debut at Seattle Opera as Rodolfo in La bohème and to Opera Australia in the same role. In concert, he joins the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra for a performance celebrating the Chinese New Year and the Queensland Symphony Orchestra for a concert of arias.

Highlights of recent seasons include house debuts at Opera Australia as Alfredo and at Pittsburgh Opera as Don Ottavio in Don Giovanni, as well as performances of Tan Dun’s Buddha Passion with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Gustavo Dudamel. Kang makes his Opera Queensland main stage debut in the role of Alfredo in La Traviata.
