Opera Hong Kong's Sunday matinee of Bizet's Carmen was good - not just OK, but good. Hong Kong's own Warren Mok sang the lead tenor role of Don Jose. I like Mok; always have. His voice can be a bit rough around the edges on occasion; perhaps he needs to perform more, preferably here, but it is distinctive, unlike the rent-a-tenors that sometimes get flown in. He is also expressive in an appealing Italianate way.
