Baritone, ROBERT HEEPYOUNG OH

I Pagliacci - R. Leoncavallo

“Of the leads only Mr. Oh distinguished himself with his singing — a beautiful voice that is very “present,” even with a too-loud orchestra. He was wonderful vocally.”

“As Tonio, Oh was superb. His opening prologue, an iconic staple for baritones, was most fine.”

Don Giovanni - W.A. Mozart

“It was also clear that Robert Hee-Pyoung Oh is comfortable on the stage. With his Don Giovanni, I did not feel a distinction between his singing and acting — they were one in the same. The singing was telling the story, and he did not stop his movement to tell the tale. That also speaks to his operatic ability, clear and solid.”

Lucia di Lammermoor - G. Donizetti

“Robert Heepyoung Oh, with a strong baritone voice that reaches deep into the basement, shines in the role of the brother.”

Carmen - G. Bizet

“Baritone Robert Heepyoung Oh, who has become a favorite with TCO audiences, portrayed the potent and studly toreador, Escamillo. He sang with a rich and strong tone, displaying the character’s arrogance.”

Rigoletto - G. Verdi

Singing the title role at all hearings, Robert Heepyoung Oh displayed a huge resonant baritone in forceful “Pari siamo!” and a fierce and furious “Cortigiani, vil razza dannata,” concluding with sensitive slow section.

La Traviata - G. Verdi

"His large and substantial sound and his formal demeanor was just right for the role,,"

Goyescas - Enrique Granados

"Hee-Pyoung Oh has a substantial baritone instrument and was quite convincing as the tough majo Paquito. He swaggered and threatened in a menacing manner which was quite different from the subtle threat and menace he portrayed when we heard him a couple months ago, singing the role of Giorgio Germont."

Carmen - G. Bizet

"As Escamillo, baritone Robert-Heepyoung Oh sang smoothly with fine phraisng, and conveyed a

believable sense of self-confidence without the cliched arrogance we usually see.

We like the fact that he was rather bemused by Don Jose in the mountain confrontation and

neutrailized him with ease.

Of course the "Toreador Song" is his hit number but we loved his duet in Act IV "Si tu m'aimes Carmen"
