Sumi Jo serves up an enigma at Cadogan Hall

I learned something https://i2.wp.com/img838.imageshack.us/img838/2566/sumijoaskonas.jpgremarkable at Cadogan Hall on Friday night: those Medieval transmutationists weren’t barking mad after all – alchemy is real. Take one South Korean soprano, one solo flautist, add a light dusting of French froth, and pure, gleaming gold will miraculously appear. The downside seems to be that if you don’t get the formula quite right, you’re stuck with something a bit nearer to lead for most of the evening.

My full review is at Opera Britannia:
