Soprano Helen Huang Performs Recital As Part Of Portland Opera’s 2019 Resident Artist Series

By Nicole Kuchta

Portland Opera will host a special community recital featuring second-year resident artist Helen Huang. The performance is part of the company’s Resident Artist Series, which consists of “intimate and direct performances – focused on the singer, the pianist, and art song.”

The soprano will perform works by female composers and poets, as well as Chinese folk and art songs. She will be accompanied by Chorus Master & Assistant Conductor Nicholas Fox on the piano.

Ms. Huang made her Portland Opera debut in the 2018 Big Night concert. She has performed four roles with the company, including Countess Ceprano in Verdi’s “Rigoletto,” Clorinda in Rossini’s “La Cenerentola,” Amor in Gluck’s “Orfeo ed Euridice,” and Annina in Verdi’s “La Traviata.” Later this season she will sing Serpetta in Mozart’s “La Finta Giardiniera,” and will also be featured in the 2019 Big Night Concert.

The recital will be held in the Whitsell Auditorium of the Portland Art Museum on Feb. 19, 2019.
