One of the world’s greatest exponents of bel canto (beautiful singing), Sumi Jo, makes her eagerly anticipated return to Melbourne in the world premiere of a thrilling new recital.

The adored soprano is partnered by dashing Argentine born José Carbó, one of Australia’s best-loved baritones, and together with acclaimed pianist Guy Noble, 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 and she is also renowned for her magnificent dress changes throughout a performance. This will be an unparalleled night of romance and glamour.
