San Diego Opera's 2023-2024 Season opens with the exciting return of soprano Latonia Moore and mezzo-soprano J'Nai Bridges on Wednesday, October 25, 2023 at 7:30 PM in concert at the Balboa Theatre with the San Diego Symphony. Both Latonia and J'Nai performed at San Diego Opera early in their careers, coming together in 2016 for a production of Madama Butterfly, where Latonia sang Cio-Cio San and J'Nai performed Suzuki. Latonia made her Company debut in 2013 in the title role of Aida. Since their joint appearances here, both singers have gone on to enjoy phenomenal careers with Latonia opening the Metropolitan Opera's 2021-22 season in Porgy and Bess, and J'Nai the subject of a PBS “American Masters” documentary. Both singers have performed at all the world's top opera houses and both have received Grammy® Awards, Latonia for a recording of Fire Shut Up In My Bones and J'Nai for Akhnaten and The Passion of Yeshua.
Audiences can expect arias and duets from the classic opera repertoire, as well as songs drawn from the American songbook, as well as a few surprises, all accompanied by the San Diego Symphony and conductor Bruce Stasyna.
Single tickets to this concert will go on sale on this Fall.
