Eun Sun Kim – conductor

Following her sensational debut with Houston Grand Opera’s 2017/18 production of La Traviata, Eun Sun Kim was named the company’s next Principal Guest Conductor. Beginning the 2019/20 season, she will be the first conductor to hold this title in Houston in 25 years, and will further her operatic presence in North America with a new production of Rusalka at San Francisco Opera. She also recently receive broad praise for her performance of Verdi’s Messa de Requiem with the Cincinnati Symphony and May Festival Chorus in May 2018.

Alongside her North American breakthrough, Ms. Kim is a regular guest conductor at many important European opera houses. She maintains a particularly close connection with the Berlin State Opera where, after recent successful productions of La Traviata, Ariadne auf Naxos, Madama Butterfly and Un ballo in maschera, she will conduct Il Trovatore in the 2018/19 season. She opens the 2018/19 season with the same title at the Royal Danish Opera in Copenhagen, and continues the season at the Bavarian State Opera where she will conduct Hänsel and Gretel, followed by Madama Butterfly at the Stuttgart Opera. Ms. Kim can be seen on the concert stage this season with symphony orchestras in Lille, Malmö, Milwaukee, Calgary and Santiago de Compostela.
