Il barbiere di Siviglia at Glyndebourne – the humour comes through, eventually

Best among them is the young soprano Hera Hyesang Park, whose Rosina, part-coquette, part moody adolescent, is as beguiling musically as she is theatrically, making pristine work of the coloratura.

Review: Barbiere di Siviglia

Hera Hyesang Park’s Rosina is probably the standout assumption, an exceptional role debut in this house. Possessed of a voice of gorgeous timbres, dazzling technical ability allied to evident musical sensitivity and a strong presence she lights up the stage. She brings Rosina the minx to life as most singers of the role can, but there is also an element of vulnerability and pathos that adds flesh and blood to the character. Her comic timing is adept, and the singing-lesson vocal antics and embellishments are hilarious. One of the finest moments is using the short storm interlude of the second Act as a visual depiction of Rosina’s feelings of anger, desperation and frustration, which Park acts well.

Recital Review:
Hyesang Park at Alice Tully Hall NY

Ms. Park knows how to work her prodigious skills such that they become art. Every song was given her full involvement. Phrasing always honored the intent of poet and composer. Exquisite control of dynamics lent variety and she used every color on her vocal palette.

Concert Review:
‘Hyesang Park’ at Vocal Arts DC

She was able to switch from sensual and mournful in Gabriel Fauré to the more delicate sounds of Reynaldo Hahn. The first part of the program was innocent and sad and flirtatious. She sang this part in a beautiful golden gown.

Soprano Park makes charismatic Washington debut with Vocal Arts DC

Park’s voice is exceedingly clean in terms of intonation and tone, a beautifully contained vibrato never obscuring the center of the pitch. She opened strong with a pair of challenging arias by Purcell, which suited her instrument the best of everything on the program.

“L’Elisir d’Amore”, Macau, 30 September

...The production boasted another Operalia winner in Hyesang Park who sang Gianetta: she needs to perkily deliver the news of Nemorino’s inheritance and then soar above the chorus in the following ensemble. The audience was lucky to have Park in the cast in what may well prove to be an “I remember when…” moment.

Soprano Park brings grace and charm to Coral Gables recital

Cuatro madrigales amatorios by Joaquín Rodrigo demonstrated Park’s vocal bona fides and intimate charm. “Con qué lavaré” harks back to Renaissance and Baroque modes and here Park’s gleaming timbre and bright sonority were deployed in a stylish and restrained manner. She delivered the more animated “De dónde venis, amore,” with gutsy flair. In “De los álamos vengo, madre,” the most famous of the songs in the cycle, Park’s control throughout her entire range, beauty of tone and charismatic stage manner recalled the greatest interpreter of this repertoire, Victoria de los Angeles.
