As Winner of the 2007 BBC Cardiff Singer of the World Competition, Shenyang came swiftly to international attention with a string of high-profile debuts ensuing including at the Metropolitan Opera, Glyndebourne Festival, Bayerische Staatsoper, Opernhaus Zürich and Washington National Opera.
While Shenyang’s early career focused principally on Rossini, Mozart and Handel roles, recent seasons have seen a shift into more dramatic repertoire with debuts as Don Pizarro (Fidelio) with Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra under Gustavo Dudamel, Jochanaan (Salome) with Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra and Alexander Liebreich, Gunther (Götterdämmerung) with Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra under Jaap van Zweden (released on Naxos), Kurwenal (Tristan und Isolde) at the Glyndebourne Festival and BBC Proms with Robin Ticciati, and Klingsor (Parsifal) at La Monnaie under Alain Altinoglu.
The concert stage has always played an important role in this versatile artist’s seasons with recent highlights including Berlioz’s Roméo et Juliette with Berliner Philharmoniker/Daniel Harding, Stravinsky’s Oedipus Rex (Tiresias) with Concertgebouworkest/Santtu-Matias Rouvali, Beethoven’s Symphony No.9 with Philadelphia Orchestra/Yannick Nézet-Séguin and New York Philharmonic/Alan Gilbert, Mussorgsky’s Songs of Dances and Death with Helsinki Philharmonic/Klaus Mäkelä, Brahms’s Ein deutsches Requiem with Boston Symphony Orchestra/Andris Nelsons and BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra/Ilan Volkov, and Mahler’s Symphony No.8 with Nederlands Philharmonisch Orkest/Marc Albrecht.
