Seattle Opera presents ‘Three Singing Sisters’ concert featuring Ginger, Marina, and Miriam Costa-Jackson 
One night only: Nov. 2
McCaw Hall
Tickets start at $35


For the Costa-Jackson sisters, singing isn’t just a passion, it’s a family business. Ginger, Marina, and Miriam Costa-Jackson—all recent or upcoming performers with Seattle Opera—are offering a special, one-night-only concert at McCaw Hall on Nov. 2. Audiences can expect an entertaining mix of opera, Broadway, and Neapolitan hits from these glamorous Sicilian-Americans. Each a rising star in her own right, the singers are especially memorable when performing together.

“Technically we have three different voice types: mezzo, full-lyric soprano, and coloratura soprano,” said Ginger Costa-Jackson. “But our different colors and strengths complement each other and create a very natural blend. It’s like a Neapolitan ice cream, except we are Sicilian!"

With her charismatic stage presence and warm mezzo-soprano, Ginger Costa-Jackson has been earning fans in Seattle since making her company debut alongside Marina Costa-Jackson. The two played sisters Dorabella and Fiordiligi in Così fan tutte (‘18). Then, in May 2019, Ginger Costa-Jackson bewitched audiences as Bizet’s iconic Carmen, a role that The Seattle Times proclaimed she was “born to sing.” This October, the mezzo returns to win hearts as Rossini’s heroine in Cinderella.

Marina Costa-Jackson, who returns to Seattle Opera as Tatyana in Eugene Onegin this January, said her sisters’ practicing at home was the soundtrack to her childhood and teenage years.

“Even now, as adults, we are in tune with each other’s careers and vocal journeys. Adding my voice to theirs is special to me, because their beautiful sounds inspired me to choose this art form,” said Marina Costa-Jackson, currently earning rave reviews for her performance as Mimì in La bohème with LA Opera.

The concert will include solos, duets, and trios; selections from West Side Story, The Boys from Syracuse, Carousel, and of course, White Christmas (specifically, the hit song “Sisters, Sisters!”). Opera fans will love hearing the barcarolle (“Belle nuit, ô nuit d'amour”) from The Tales of Hoffmann and “The Flower Duet” from Lakmé. In celebration of their Sicilian-American heritage, the sisters will also perform Neapolitan songs. The entire program will be accompanied on piano by John Keene, Seattle Opera's chorus master since 2012. 

From selecting music and gowns, rehearsing together—and deciding who will take which lines—the Costa-Jacksons enjoy the entire process of putting on a show. When they take to the stage, it’s almost like the sisters share a brain, said Miriam Costa-Jackson, who makes her company debut as Clorinda, wicked stepsister/foil to Ginger Costa-Jackson in Cinderella.

“There have been times during a concert where one of us decided to improvise—we all sync up perfectly, already sensing what to do. Singing with my sisters is a dream come true.”

Tickets for Three Singing Sisters are available online at seattleopera.org, by calling 206.389.7676, or in person at the ticket office located at the Opera Center, 363 Mercer Street. Box office hours are 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Monday-Friday.

  7. Hello to every one out here, am here to share the unexpected miracle that happened in my marriage, My name is Melissa Robert, i live in Texas USA. and I`m happily married to a lovely and caring husband with two kids A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago between me and my husband so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce he said that he never wanted the marriage to continue again and that he did not love me anymore So he packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pains. I tried all my possible means to get him back, after much begging but all to no avail and he confirmed it that he has made his decision and our marriage is over. So on one evening, on my way back from work, i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband and i explained every thing to her, she told me that the only way i can get my husband back is to visit a spell caster because it has really worked for her too and i never believed in spells but i had no other choice than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited. So the next morning i sent a mail to the address she gave to me and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back within 3 days, I never believed but he instruct me on everything i need to do. surprisingly, my husband who did not call me for the past seven 7months gave me a call in less than 48hours after i spoke with the great spell caster to inform me that he was coming back and was seriously asking for forgiveness for all he has caused to me and the kids. So that was how he came back that same day with lots of love and joy, and he apologized for his mistake and for the pain he caused me and my children. from that day, our relationship was now stronger than how it were before by the help of a spell caster Dr isewede i will advice you out there to kindly contact him vai the following means, Whatsapp:+2348147840637, Email:dr.isewedespelltemple@gmail.com or visit his website:http://isewedespelltemple.com if you are in any condition like this or you have any problem related to “bringing your ex back. thanks to Dr isewede for bringing back my husband and brought great joy to my family once again.
