Sumi Jo: Mad for Love – Showcase
One of the world’s greatest exponents of bel canto (beautiful singing), Sumi Jo, will make her eagerly anticipated Adelaide debut in a thrilling programme entitled Mad for Love.
She will be partnered by dashing Argentineborn José Carbó, now one of Australia’s best loved baritones. Together they will ignite the stage with renditions of the most passionate repertoire from opera and operetta, as well as popular canzoni and tangos, and meltingly beautiful folk songs from Sumi Jo’s native Korea.
Described by the legendary maestro Herbert von Karajan as having “a voice from above”, Sumi Jo is one of the most in demand singers on the international stage.
Her astonishing vocal technique and purity of tone captivate audiences, as do her many exquisite dresses, adding to the glamour of the concert.
This will be an unparalleled night of romance which will live long in the memory of all who attend.
