One of the most sought-after countertenors of his generation, Bienen alumnus Kangmin Justin Kim has earned recognition for his roles in Baroque repertoire, contemporary music, and Mozart’s trouser roles. The 2021-22 season saw his return to the Vienna State Opera for Henze’s Das verratene Meer (The Betrayed Sea), his highly-anticipated role debut as Knusperhexe in Hänsel und Gretel at Theater Wiesbaden, and his “simply breathtaking” (Santa Fe Reporter) Santa Fe Opera debut in the title role of the world premiere of Huang Ruo’s M. Butterfly. His 2022-23 season opened with a return to Venice as Hyacinthus in Teatro La Fenice’s new staging of Mozart’s Apollo et Hyacinthus at Teatro Malibran. In this master class, he coaches accomplished Bienen voice and opera program students.
