Angel Place, Sydney 2000
The internationally celebrated Grammy-award winning coloratura soprano Sumi Jo returns to Sydney for an unmissable recital at the City Recital Hall on July 19.
One of the world’s greatest exponents of bel canto (beautiful singing), Sumi Jo will perform a magnificent program of music from her unsurpassed repertoire, joined on stage for the first time by dashing Argentine-born baritone José Carbó.
With over 50 recordings to her credit Sumi Jo is one of the highest selling classical singers in the world, and one of the most sought-after sopranos of her generation. Legendary maestro Herbert von Karajan describes Jo as having ‘a voice from above’.
Sumi Jo and José Carbó will ignite Australian stages with renditions of the most passionate pieces from opera and operetta, tango, and traditional folk song from Jo’s native Korea. Her astonishing vocal technique and purity of tone will be matched by an exquisite wardrobe for a night of operatic glamour.
