Singapore Lyric Opera’s outdoor performance is set to celebrate its 10th year anniversary, with a great list of programmes, classical favourites and a special guest appearance
Who said opera had to be in the theatre? These tenors and sopranos will be taking their craft out of the opera house and into nature. Gracing the stage in 2008, the Singapore Lyric Opera is back to serenade you with a mesmerising repertoire on 17 June at the ever-scenic Singapore Botanic Gardens, in conjunction with the 10-year anniversary of Opera in the Park.
Eliminating the clichés of traditional opera performances and aiming to attract a wider audience, the Singapore Lyric Opera will be showcasing their set in the great outdoors – the Shaw Foundation Symphony Stage to be exact. Get ready to fall in love with renditions of opera classics such as faves, Rossini’s La Gazette, O lusinghiero amor, Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro, Voi che sapete, and Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi, O Mio Babbino Caro. The brilliant line-up of programmes is carefully curated to pay homage to the Music of Our Youth, exemplifying those care-free, salad days.
Led by Singaporean conductor and The Julliard School graduate, Joshua Tan, the Orchestra will also feature winners from the Open and Junior categories of the SLO-Asean Vocal Competition 2016, Izen Kong, Zhang Jie, Melissa Hecker and Lauren Yep. Plus, the SLO Chorus and Children Choir will be making a guest appearance at this annual event, so you’ll even catch future opera starlets from this bunch of talented tots.
So don’t forget to mark your calendars for a great evening out with the fam and mates!
