2022: Hong Kong soprano Vivian Yau is claimed on the world’s major stages, from New York’s Carnegie Hall to the Cultural Centre in her native Hong Kong.

Yau sang the title role in the 2021 world premiere of Alice in Wonderland (Pierangelo Valtinoni) which production was co-commissioned by Zürich Opera and Yip’s Children’s Choir Hong Kong. She sings regularly with the Hong Kong Sinfonietta.

On top of her roles like Rosina in The Barber of Seville and the title role of Les mamelles de Tirésias, Yau has also done digital work. She sings in Michael Ching’s Zoom Speed Dating Tonight! and she created her own music video for her 2020 performance of George Crumb’s Apparition.
