Kihun Yoon

Baritone

Korean baritone Kihun Yoon continues for a third season in the ensemble at Oldenburgisches Staatstheater, where he appears as Gunter Gotterdammerung, Renato Un Ballo in Maschera, Enrico Lucia di Lammermoor, and to round out the season, Wotan Das Rheingold and Die Walkure, and Alberich Siegfried. Guest engagements include his return to Los Angeles Opera, where he was a member of the Domingo-Thornton young artist programme, in the roles of Marcello La Boheme and Nottingham Roberto Devereux

Previous 2017-18 appearances in Oldenburg include the title role Rigoletto, and Miecznik Maria (Roman Statkowski), while in 2018/19 he sang Alberich Siegfried, Mephistopheles La Damnation de Faust, Enrico Lucia di Lammermoor, and Joseph De Rocher Dead Man Walking.

“Kihun Yoon’s Marcello was the young cast’s anchor, with real beauty of voice and easy command.”  

– Laurence Vittes, Bachtrack, 15 September 2019

“The most vocal achievement came from Kihun Yoon as secretary and first hand of the governor. He becomes even more violent in his care and loyalty to his friend when he learns about the alleged infidelity of his wife and Riccardo. What was once tender regard changes to the infernal will to destroy: Renato becomes the leader of the conspirators. In terms of voice, the virile baritone Kihun Yoon masters this process of change very convincingly…”

– Andreas Schweiberer, NWZ Online, 9 December 2019
