Mad For Love - SUMI JO and José Carbó
The internationally celebrated Grammy-award winning coloratura soprano Sumi Jo returns to Australia this July for a series of unmissable concerts in Adelaide, Melbourne (July 17th 7:30pm at Melbourne Recital Centre), Sydney and Brisbane.
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 the highest selling classical singer in the world, and one of the most sought-after sopranos of her generation. Her concerts have delighted audiences globally, including performances at the Summer and Winter Olympics, and for the Pope. Legendary maestro Herbert von Karajan describes Jo as having ‘a voice from above’.
José Carbó, born in Argentina to Spanish and Italian parents, has become one of Australia’s most popular baritones, touring locally and internationally with Opera Australia, Victorian Opera and Los Angeles Opera since 2005. His debut album My Latin Heart debuted at no.1 in the Limelight Magazine Classical charts.
Sumi Jo and José Carbó will ignite Australian stages with renditions of the most passionate pieces from opera and operetta, as well as 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.
