Sumi Jo: Accompanied by Terence Dennis

Hailed as a “Superstar” and “one of the best-loved sopranos of her generation” (CNN), Sumi Jo captivates with the remarkable agility, precision, and warmth of her voice.

From the great coloratura roles by Mozart, Rossini, Bellini to iconic characters like Voiletta in La Traviata, Gilda in Rigoletto and Olympia in Les contes d’Hoffmann, she continues to set standards, enchanting audiences and critics alike. Sumi Jo has personally selected her operatic repertoire for this special event.

Marking Sumi Jo's return to Aotearoa New Zealand for the first time in over a decade, and her only performance while in Te Whanganui-a-Tara as International Head Judge for the Lexus Song Quest in association with the Kiri Te Kanawa Foundation — this is a rare and intimate opportunity you won’t want to miss.

At this event Sumi Jo will perform*:

  • Sposa son disprezzata (Vivaldi)
  • Gypsy and the Bird (J. Benedict)
  • Plaisir d'amour (Martini)
  • La Pastorella dell'Alpi (Rossini)
  • I Dreamt I Dwelt in Marble Halls (Balfe)
  • Vilja-Lied (Lehar)
  • Spiel ich die Unschuld vom Lande (J. Strauss)
  • Casta Diva (Bellini)
