SLO January 2011 Carmen Cast Announced

While the SLO is celbrating its 25th wonderful years of opera-making tonight, I'm pleased to announce the cast of January's Carmen. With the exception of French Sophie Fourier and Chinese Huang Rong Hai, we have a cast of familiar faces here. Worth noting is that Li Yang, last seen in the minor role of Papagena, moves to leading lady status as Micaela. Satsuki Nagatomi, featured recently on The Mad Scene for her appearance in the breast cancer fundraiser Pink Beats, will be making her SLO debut as the gypsy girl Mercedes. Here's the cast list:

Carmen - Sophie Fournier (France)
Don Jose - Lee Jae Wook
Micaela - Li Yang
Escamillo - Huang Rong Hai
Zuniga - William Lim
Frasquita - Cherylene Liew
Mercedes - Satsuki Nagatomi
El Dancairo - Melvin Tan
Remendado - Peter Ong
Morales - Gabriel Pang

Director and Set Design - David Edwards
Conductor - Joshua Kangming Tan

The Singapore Lyric Opera Orchestra

Chorus Mistress - Khor Ai Ming

With additional male chorus from National Centre for Performing Arts, Beijing, People’s Republic of China
