Etta FungSoprano

Rising coloratura soprano Etta Fung, a native of Hong Kong, made her European debut as Gretel (Hänsel und Gretel) at the Neue Eutiner Festspiele in Eutin, Germany and received critical acclaim in the Hamburger Abendblatt: “(Fung) acted with great enthusiasm, her powerful soprano voice underscoring the Wagnerian sounds of the score.” Since then, Etta has sung the roles of Susanna (Le Nozze di Figaro) in the Trentino Music Festival at Mezzano, and La Fée (Cendrillon) in the Siena Music Festival in Siena, Italy.
Etta made her American professional debut as Peep-Bo (The Mikado) during her Apprenticeship with the Lyric Opera of Kansas City after singing Musetta (La Bohème) at Janiec Opera at Brevard Music Center. Etta has also been cast as Susanna (Le Nozze di Figaro), Lucia (Rape of Lucretia), Pamina (Die Zauberflöte), Gretel (Hänsel und Gretel), Atalanta (Serse) and Anne Trulove (The Rakeʼs Progress). She was invited to sing Britten’s Songs from the Chinese with Brazilian guitarist Camilo Carreras and the soprano solo in Brahms’ Ein Deutsches Requiem, at the National Music Festival in Chestertown, Maryland in the summer of 2015. Recently she covered the role of Adele (Die Fledermaus) and was featured in the Highlights Concert of Martina Arroyo’s Prelude to Performance.
Etta was a winner of the Metropolitan Opera District Auditions (Kansas City, 2014) as well as the winner of the Vocal Division of the Naftzger Competition (2012). She was a recent finalist in the Opera Ebony Benjamin A Matthews Competition.
