MORE ABOUT ARTISTS:

ETTA FUNG

Coloratura soprano Etta Fung is known for her “charm and verve” (Opera Today) and exceptional stage presence. She has enjoyed an international performing career in Germany, Italy, the United States, Canada and Hong Kong. She received critical acclaim in the Hamburger Abendblatt for her European debut as Gretel (Hänsel und Gretel) at the Neue Eutiner Festspiele in Eutin, Germany. She has also sung the roles of Musetta (La Bohème), Susanna (Nozze di Figaro), and Königin der Nacht (die Zauberflöte) among many others.

In 2019, she created the role of Keiko in Elena Langer’s new opera Beauty and Sadness.

Etta sang the title role of Rita in Donizetti’s Rita, the first opera-movie that took place in Hong Kong.

Etta is the only opera-singer/aerialists in Asia. She created Opera Sull’Aria - aerialopera: a unique act which combines operatic singing with the circus art of aerial silks.

Some of his notable roles performed include roles in Il barbiere di Siviglia, Le Nozze di Figaro, The Rake’s Progress, Madama Butterfly, L’Elisir d’Amore, Die Zauberflöte, Die Fledermaus, Falstaff, and Airadne auf Naxos.
