A graduate of The Juilliard School and the Metropolitan Opera’s Lindemann Young Artist Development Program, Fang is a star on the rise. Fang will appear alongside frequent collaborator and accomplished pianist Ken Noda in a personally chosen program featuring the works of Bach, Schubert and R. Strauss, as well as a special selection of Chinese folk songs.

The Robert E. and Jean Ann Titus Family Recital is an annual Dallas Opera tradition intended to bring Texas audiences the most profound artists from around the world straight to their doorstep, all while continuing to honor the craft of art song. Tickets start at $15 and are available at or by calling 214-443-1000. English translations will be available.
