November 16, 24 and 30, 2019
After completing a two-year membership at the International Opera Studio of the Hamburg State Opera, Shin Yeo from the beginning of the 2019/20 season is engaged as a bass at the Stadttheater Bremerhaven, where his roles include Alidoro in La Cenerentola, Le Bailli in Werther and Gérard de Villefort in The Count of Monte Christo.
His tenure at the International Opera Studio in Hamburg gave him the possibility of working with conductors like Kent Nagano, Paolo Carignani, Pier Giorgio Morandi and Stefano Ranzani, and acquiring a broad repertoire ranging from Georg Philipp Telemann to Alban Berg.
Prior to joining the Opera Studio in Hamburg, Shin Yeo has been a member of the Opernstudio Niederrhein in Krefeld/Mönchengladbach where he was entrusted with roles such as Bartolo in Il barbiere di Siviglia, Peter in Hänsel und Gretel and Heerrufer in Lohengrin.
Born in Daegu, South Korea, Shin Yeo graduated from Gyeongbuk Arts High School and obtained his bachelor degree at the Korean National University of Arts in Seoul. He then came to Europe for his master’s degree at the Staatliche Hochschule für Musik und darstellende Kunst in Stuttgart and went on to complete his studies at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Munich.
