ROCKDALE OPERA COMPANY CO PATRONS DANIEL SUMEGI & JOSÉ CARBÓ
A message from Daniel Sumegi
“As Australia’s oldest opera company, Rockdale Opera Company has provided a much needed platform for young aspiring professionals to ‘tread the boards’ alongside the people that make up the bulk of the company - the true opera lovers. I made my solo debut at Rockdale 31 years ago as Fiorello in The Barber of Seville alongside the beautiful Deborah Riedel. Having then sung in four other productions with ROC in my early days, I moved out into the wider vocal world - where I have proudly been singing professionally since 1988.
Rockdale Opera Company is very much a community organisation and has been generously supported by the Rockdale City Council for many generations.The word ‘Rockdale’ resonates so powerfully throughout the operatic family and I sincerely hope this invaluable cornerstone of our culture continues to flourish”.
A message from José Carbó
"As an up and coming singer, I was fortunate to have performed five roles with the company. Since establishing my professional career, I now consider it an honour and a responsibility to ensure there continues to be a platform which will enable the company to further prosper and adapt to the requirements and demands of present day live operatic entertainment. It is vital we succeed so future generations of singers can continue to have the opportunity and a platform where they can learn their trade and ply their craft and gain much needed and valuable performance experience, as I and all that came before me have had."
