About our guest artist: 

Recently named The New York Times 2021 Breakout Star in Classical Music, Korean conductor Eun Sun Kim is the Caroline H. Hume Music Director of San Francisco Opera. Her presence in North America was first established with performances of Verdi’s Requiem with the Cincinnati Symphony and La traviata at Houston Grand Opera, with the latter earning her an appointment as the company’s first Principal Guest Conductor in twenty-five years. 

The 2021/22 season opens Ms. Kim’s inaugural term at San Francisco Opera, where she leads Tosca and a new production of Fidelio, in addition to three concerts. She continues a series of important operatic debuts, appearing at Wiener Staatsoper and the Metropolitan Opera for La bohème, and at Lyric Opera of Chicago for Tosca, before returning to Houston Grand Opera for a new production of Turandot. She is slated to conduct symphony orchestras around the globe, including concerts in Philadelphia, Detroit, Toronto, Portland, and the United Kingdom.

Ms. Kim has enjoyed additional North American successes at Los Angeles Opera, Washington National Opera, and Los Angeles Philharmonic. She is a regular guest conductor at opera houses across Europe, including Wiener Staatsoper, Staatsoper Berlin, Bayerische Staatsoper, Semperoper Dresden, Staatsoper Stuttgart, Royal Swedish Opera, Royal Danish Opera, Den Norske Opera, Opernhaus Zürich, and Oper Frankfurt. Concert performances comprise appearances with Orchestre de Paris, Beethoven Orchestra Bonn, and Stuttgart Philharmonic, as well as orchestras in Madrid, Marseille, Munich, Lille, Nancy, Palermo, Turin, Milwaukee, Calgary, and Santiago de Compostela.

Ms. Kim studied composition and conducting in her hometown of Seoul, South Korea, before continuing her studies in Stuttgart, Germany, where she graduated with distinction. Directly after graduation, she was awarded the First Prize in the International Jesús López Cobos Opera Conducting Competition at the Teatro Real Madrid.
