Deep and smooth in mid-pitch, bright and solid in high-pitch, Wei Song is regarded as the “classic Italian tenor” by numerous international music experts and gains the reputation: “one of the world’s best Otellos”. Wei Song stared in Turandot, Tosca, Otello, Rigoletto, Crying into the Air, Cavalleria Rusticana, Madama Butterfly, Carmen, Paris Torches, La Dame aux Camélias, Yevgény Onégin, Hegemon King of Western Chu, and Thunderstorm as the principle actor. And he is the only Chinese tenor who successfully challenged the role of Otello in the opera of Otello!

In addition to Wei Song's stage performance, two musical movies were presented to the public audience as well, one is the Chinese original opera QU YUAN and the other is Italian opera Otello.
